FILE - In this May 8, 2012 file photo, President Barack Obama speaks in Washington. The Obama administration wants the Supreme Court to overturn California’s gay marriage ban, outlining a broad legal argument that could ultimately be applied to other state prohibitions. The administration’s friend-of-the-court brief unequivocally calls on the justices to strike down California's Proposition 8 ballot measure. But it stops short of the soaring rhetoric on marriage equality from President Barack Obama’s inaugural address. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster, File)
