| No Comments

WASHINGTON--After years of "evolving" on whether to back gay marriage, President Barack Obama on Wednesday said he is for same-sex couples getting married, with the Obama team giving the scoop to ABC News Robin Roberts.

The Obama team--thrown off message this week by the gay marriage issue--touched off on Sunday with supportive comments from Vice President Joe Biden--decided to not wait any longer and have Obama say where many saw he was headed: "I think same sex couples should be able to get married."
