On “Meet the Press” this morning, Vice President Joe Biden said that he is “absolutely comfortable” with gay marriage, via TheBostonChannel.com.

“I just think that the good news is that as more and more Americans come to understand what this is all about, it is a simple proposition: Who do you love? Who do you love? And will you be loyal to the person who love?” Biden said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”


Asked if the president would support same-sex marriage in a second term, Biden said he didn’t know the answer. But he pointed to the Obama administration’s repeal of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, a move that now allows gay and lesbian members of the military to serve openly.

Biden did not specifically address a ballot initiative to ban same-sex marriage being voted on in North Carolina this week.
