Obama's education secretary: gay marriage is OK

The Slatest reports on Education Secretary Arne Duncan's comments on Morning Joe today:

The White House is still officially holding the company line on same-sex marriage, but that's not stopping some high-profile members of the Obama administration from coming out in support of allowing gays and lesbians to wed.

Education Secretary Arne Duncan made his position clear on Monday morning, one day after Vice President Joe Biden made waves by declaring that he is "absolutely comfortable" with gay marriage.

While on MSNBC's Morning Joe on Monday, Duncan was asked directly whether he thinks gay couples should be able to marry. His response: "Yes, I do." Duncan added that he'd never before been asked that question publicly.
