Halperin: Obama Expected to Endorse Gay Marriage — VIDEO

Halperin

As noted this morning, the President is expected to speak to ABC News' Robin Roberts in an interview this afternoon. Pundits expect that it is to note the completion of his evolution on same-sex marriage, Think Progress reports:

"Every expectation that we will, within the next hour, be in a different world, where we will have a President of the United States who supports the legalization of gay marriage... The Vice President, I think, forced his hand. But even before the Vice President spoke on Meet The Press in favor of gay marriage, the President, I think, was headed in this direction even before the election. There was a lot of speculation he would wait until after he was reelected or lost, but I think the people around him all felt there was going to come a time where he needed to do this. It’s where everyone, or almost everyone, who works for him is. I think, and a lot of people think who have observed him over the years think, it is where his heart is. And I think when he does it – although there will be a lot of speculation with political implications – it’s just as likely to help him win reelection than hurt him."

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

Stay tuned folks.

  1. I didn't need to President to do this before the election, but if he does, all of you better shut the hell up and get behind the man and his decision RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW. I would be really surprised if he did this today -- and if he does it would seem he personally can't stand keeping the facade up -- but IF HE DOES -- there's no "why did he do this" or "he's gonna loose reelection" -- there is only "Mr. President, we are 100% behind you"

  2. Dear Malaysianho--

    I am way over 40 and as much as I surprised that SSM HAS become an issue OVER Many Many other issues-- I am facing the fact that a line has been drawn in the sand and NOW this issue needs to be resolved once and for all.

    I NEVER expected in my lifetime I could be legally married in CT. Yet it's only Stare recognition.
