Robert Gibbs, a top adviser for
President Barack Obama's reelection campaign, said Sunday he was
unsure whether Democrats will add support for gay marriage to the
2012 Democratic Party platform.
Last week, Freedom to Marry launched
Say I Do campaign, which calls on the Democratic National
Committee (DNC) to endorse marriage equality in this year's platform.
The DNC will ratify the document during its national convention,
which begins September 3 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
“I don't know the answer to that,”
Gibbs, a former White House spokesman, told ABC This Week host
Jake Tapper. “I haven't talked to the president at all recently on
“I think we all look to and want to
live in a world where, if you're applying for a job or doing
anything, you're not judged on your sexual orientation. You
shouldn't be. And I think living in a society where that doesn't
happen is a society we all want to live.”
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi
said she supports the effort.
