Education Secretary Arne Duncan became the third member of President Obama's cabinet to endorse same-sex marriage today, joining Veep Joe Biden and Housing Secretary Shaun Donovan.
Duncan's endorsement, which comes on the heels of Biden's Sunday morning reveal, may force Obama to take a stronger public stand on the subject. The president has said that his views are "evolving," but he has not formally backed same-sex marriage.
Meanwhile, David Axelrod, a top Obama adviser, said this morning that the vice president's comments were "entirely consistent with the president's position":
Couples who are married, whether they are gay or heterosexual couples, are entitled to the very same rights or very same liberties.
