A former adviser to President Clinton, Richard Socarides, told Michael Hastings, Michael Shure, and Tricia Rose on Current TV that he believes President Obama will come out in favor of marriage equality before August's Democratic National Convention.

“I’m actually surprised he’s waited this long,” Socarides said. “I think that he is ready to go.”

That fits with beltway buzz this morning that Obama is talking to Robin Roberts about LGBT issues in an  exclusive interview today.
