As he gears up for his re-election battle, President Barack Obama is considering the idea of endorsing same-sex marriage, The New York Times reports.

A Democratic strategist told the Times that high-ranking White House officials “are looking at the tactics of how this might be done if the president chose to do it.”

Another intriguing clue comes from Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., who is openly gay. He said he was asked by an Obama official, “What would be the effect if he came out for same-sex marriage?”

Obama is the prime attraction at a Gala with the Gay Community fundraiser in New York City this coming week. He also will hold a gay pride at the White House on June 29, the Times reports.
