WASHINGTON–After years of “evolving” on whether to back gay marriage, President Barack Obama on Wednesday said he is for same-sex couples getting married, with the Obama team giving the scoop to ABC News Robin Roberts.

The Obama team–thrown off message this week by the gay marriage issue–touched off on Sunday with supportive comments from Vice President Joe Biden–decided to not wait any longer and have Obama say where many saw he was headed: “I think same sex couples should be able to get married.”
