"I don't think that it makes sense for the federal government to get in the business of determining what marriage is, that isn't traditionally the federal government's role."

Obama on Gay Marriage
Here's Obama's answer to Brian Williams question about gay marriage during part two of the NBC White House special. Though he skirts the marriage vs. civil union issue a bit, he does say that the the government should not be defining marriage, straight or gay. His answer isn't terribly satisfying, but I think that it does move the debate in the right direction.
