Gay Marriage Debate Evolves

Bill Clark/CQ Roll Call File Photo

According to ABC, the president said he still supports states deciding the issue but that hes confident Americans will grow comfortable with gay marriage. He noted his own daughters are comfortable with it.

Its interesting, some of this is also generational, Obama said in the interview. You know, Malia and Sasha, they have friends whose parents are same-sex couples. There have been times where Michelle and I have been sitting around the dinner table and were talking about their friends and their parents and Malia and Sasha, it wouldnt dawn on them that somehow their friends parents would be treated differently. It doesnt make sense to them and frankly, thats the kind of thing that prompts a change in perspective.
