Prediction: Obama Will Say He Supports Gay Marriage

President Obama continues to play cute with his position on gay marriage, remaining opposed, we think, while his press secretary can say only that the president’s position is “evolving.” Vice President Biden’s position is also evolving. I’ve never heard of a politician saying their view on any matter is “evolving,” but in this
