President Obama sat down with CBS's Scott Pelley for a pre-game interview before Super Bowl XLVII, and gave a pretty firm answer on the question of gay Boy Scouts.
"Yes," said the POTUS, when asked if the scouts should allow gay members. "Gays and lesbians should have access and opportunity the same way everybody else does in every institution and walk of life," he added.
Rick Perry is so far the most high-profile office-holder who's made statements against gay scout membership.
In the CBS interview, the president was equally clear-cut on the issue of women in combat. Asked if he had any doubts, Obama responded, "you know, I don't."
