Obama Still Quiet on Gay Marriage in Democrats' Platform

 

The Washington Times:

Democrats are asking supporters to "stand with" President Obama and the Democratic Party in solidarity on gay marriage — even though the White House and Mr. Obama's campaign repeatedly have declined to say whether the president supports efforts to write a gay-marriage plank in the party's platform.

...Mr. Obama earlier this year reversed himself and said he now embraces gay marriage, but the White House last week as well as the campaign declined to say whether the president supports adding the plank or whether doing so would hurt Democratic candidates in swing states.
