Obama's comments come a day after North Carolina passed a ban on same-sex marriage. The New York Times reports the president's decision to make this announcement "appears to have been driven by unexpected declarations of support" after Vice President Joe Biden, Education Secretary Arne Duncan, and other cabinet members earlier this week.
