The POTUS and Cabinet members silent on same sex marriage

Since VP Joe Biden and Ed Secretary Arne Duncan publically expressed their support on same sex marriage earlier, President Obama and other Cabinet members have remained deafeningly silent. President Obama is in a delicate area regarding publically endorsing same sex marriages. If he does so, he runs the risk of alienating members of his party and supporters who are opposed to the social issue. This comes on the heels of North Carolina’s overwhelming passing of Amendment 1 which in essence bans same sex marriages in the state.
