Obama endorses same-sex marriage
 
http://www.bestofneworleans.com/imag...2.38.26_pm.png In an interview this afternoon with ABC News' Robin Roberts, President Barack Obama said his position on same-sex marriage is no longer evolving, and with one very long sentence, Obama became the first sitting president to endorse same-sex marriage:
"I have to tell you that over the course of several years as I have talked to friends and family and neighbors when I think about members of my own staff who are in incredibly committed monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships, who are raising kids together, when I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that Don't Ask Don't Tell is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point Iíve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married."
On Sunday's Meet the Press, Vice President Joe Biden also expressed his support of both same-sex marriage and the sitcom Will and Grace.
