WASHINGTON (WUSA) - President Barack Obama tells reporter Robin Roberts that he supports gay marriage.
President Obama is the first president to take that position.
"Up until now, I thought legal unions would have been enough," the President told Roberts.
Years ago, the President said he was"constantly evolving. I struggle with this," in a national media interview.
On Wednesday, he told Roberts: "I've just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married."
