Obama tells ABC in an interview that he wasn’t worried about being upstaged by his vice president on the volatile social issue. At one point, he says, “Would I have preferred to have done this my own way? …. Sure.”
But Obama quickly adds, “All’s well that ends well.”

He tells ABC’s Robin Roberts that he “already made a decision to take this position” before Biden made his comments in response to a question asked on a nationally broadcast interview Sunday.

Education Secretary Arne Duncan endorsed gay marriage on Monday, two days before Obama’s statement.
Obama says he didn’t revise his position to achieve any political advantage.
