The conversation continued Monday night over the weekend remarks by Joe Biden and the attempt by the White House to frame those marks within its own "same legal rights" argument and avoid addressing the marriage issue directly.

David Axelrod was on the defensive again in an interview with Piers Morgan.

Said Axelrod:

"I feel, Piers, that on the policy that the vice president was describing there, that they are in complete accord. That is the president's policy. He believes that couples, heterosexual couples, – gay couples should – should have – have the same legal rights. So what the vice president was stating there was very much in keeping with that policy."

Said Axelrod: "I'm not climbing into the PResident's head here and telling you what he thinks vs what he says. I think he's made very clear his view that gay and lesbian couples are entitled to their legal rights...I'm not going to project ahead and consider hypotheticals...."

Watch: WH Advisor David Axelrod Defends Obama's Contradictory Position on Equality and Same-Sex Marriage

Axelrod

White House Senior Advisor David Axelrod defends Obama's contradictory position that he supports equality for gays and lesbians but is against same-sex marriage.

Axelrod clarifies:

"He supports equality for gay and lesbian couples...in benefits and other issues and that has been effectuated in federal agencies under his control."

The question remains — in a nation where "all men are created equal" is it right for its leader to espouse a position of only limited equality for some of its citizens? Because that's essentially the position Axelrod is defending.

Civil unions are not marriage.
