President Obama has tiptoed towards outright endorsement of same-sex marriage through the repeal of "Don't Ask Don't Tell" and his support of repealing the Defense of Marriage Act. However, some of his supporters are calling for him to take the final step and make support of same-sex marriage part of his campaign platform. But others fear that could cost him politically.

Guests:

Evan Wolfson, founder and president of Freedom to Marry, an organization campaigning to win marriage nationwide

Ed Espinoza, Democratic political consultant with Ed Espinoza Political Consulting
