President Barack Obama on Wednesday reiterated his support for gay marriage when asked whether his administration would weigh in on the Supreme Court case challenging California's Proposition 8, the 2008 voter-approved constitutional amendment which limits marriage to heterosexual couples.

“The solicitor general is still looking at this,” Obama told San Francisco ABC affiliate ABC7's Dan Ashley. “I have to make sure that I'm not interjecting myself too much into this process, particularly when we're not a party to the case.”

Proposition 8 put an end to the marriages of gay and lesbian couples taking place in the state after the California Supreme Court struck down the state's law excluding gay couples from marriage.

The administration has until February 28 to file an amicus brief in the case.

“I can tell you, though, obviously my personal view, which is that I think that same-sex couples should have the same rights and be treated like everybody else,” Obama continued. “And that's something that I feel very strongly about [and] my administration's acting on wherever we can.” (The video is embedded on this page.
