Obama Goes ‘Forward’ on gay marriage

President Obama has scheduled an interview about his views on gay marriage for Wednesday afternoon, capping days of growing pressure to clarify his “evolving” position after Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. spoke out in support of such unions.

Mr. Obama is expected to sit down with ABC NewsRobin Roberts at the White House for an interview that wasn’t listed on his schedule earlier in the day. The interview comes a day after North Carolina voters approved a constitutional amendment defining marriage as a union only between a man and a woman, the 32nd state to approve such a measure.

The full interview is set to air Thursday on “Good Morning America,” but some portions of it will be released Wednesday.

The White House said Mr. Obama was “disappointed” in the North Carolina vote, but didn’t say anything about the president coming out in favor of gay marriage.

“President Obama has long believed that gay and lesbian couples deserve the same rights and legal protections as straight couples,” the White House said.
