WASHINGTON -- President Obama said Vice President Joe Biden got "a little over his skis” on Sunday when he said he supported same-sex marriage on a morning TV talk show.
But Biden did it out of a "generosity of spirit," Obama said in the full interview with ABC’s Robin Roberts on "Good Morning America," broadcast today.
Obama said he had already made a decision that he would affirm the right of gays and lesbians to marry and was planning to do it in advance of the election.
"Would I have preferred to have done this in my own way?" Obama asked, answering, "Sure." But things turned out as they should have, he said.
