President Obama is scheduled to sit-down today for an interview with ABC News on and is expected to discuss his vague, “evolving” position on same-sex marriage.
The interview, tightly controlled, will be conducted by Robin Roberts, an anchor and a lesbian, on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. and was secured in the wake of a declaration by Vice President Joe “Uncle Joe” Biden saying on Sunday that he was “absolutely comfortable” with same-sex marriages.
Since then, Mr. Obama’s secretary of education, Arne Duncan, said he too supports same-sex marriage, becoming the third White House official to do so. His secretary of housing, Shaun Donovan, has previously expressed support for same-sex nuptials.
Regarding today’s ABC News interview, my guess is, President Obama will reassure religious conservatives that he hasn’t gone over to the dark side, and remains opposed marriage equality based on his religious beliefs but still supports separate, but equal, civil unions.
I hope I am wrong but, the president is running for reelection and he isn’t about to alienating any voters. Call it: triangulation.
