President Obama got chatty with the ladies of "The View" today.

What was the hot topic he talked about? Well, what's the only hot topic worth discussing nowadays?

Gay marriage, of course!

The POTUS explained that, though he's not convinced that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is constitutional (as the justice department has previously stated), he's not committing to repeal it yet. President Obama said he knows that this will be one of the big issues in the upcoming election.

"This is going to be a big contrast in the campaign, because you've got Gov. Romney saying we should actually have a constitutional amendment installing the notion that you can't have same-sex marriages," he said.

Guess we'll just have to stay tuned and, see how this all plays out in November!

Did you know? ... In the past decade, 10 countries around the world have legally allowed and recognized same-sex marriages, including Argentina, Canada, Iceland, the Netherlands, South Africa and Spain. Want to learn more? Read up on it, here.
