While President Obama's interview with ABC's Robin Roberts has been touted online with a fervor over whether or not he will finally Obama's moment in the sunannounce his support of same-sex marriage, news has now leaked that the President does say he has completed his "evolution."

From the Free Republic:

"I have to tell you that over the course of several years as I have talked to friends and family and neighbors when I think about members of my own staff who are in incredibly committed monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships, who are raising kids together, when I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that Don't Ask Don't Tell is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point I've just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married," Obama told Roberts.

Segments of the interview should air momentarily on ABC. Excerpts will air tonight on "World News with Diane Sawyer" and the full interview tomorrow morning on "Good Morning America."
