Obama: Gay Marriage Coming

The president continued to pretend not to support gay marriage at his press conference, even while saying he's pleased that it is gaining broader acceptance.

Obama applauded New York State which adopted gay marriage earlier this month for its vigorous debate over the issue. Obama has said on earlier occasions that his position on gay marriage is "evolving" and today he went so far as to say that the principle of gay equality "will win out."

The president seems to be holding back on taking the gay marriage plunge until he needs something to get the base energized.

I'm not going to make news on that today,” he told The Wall Street Journal’s Laura Meckler. “Good try, though.”
