I don’t think it’s cowardice, it’s just shrewd. I do not believe Barack H. Obama accepts the fundamental notion of gay marriage but they’ve determined that keeping the Gay Left in the fold, and the money flowing, is more important right now than the broader appeal of Traditional Marriage.
In this instance, the Constitution offers a convenient foil to any demands for actual action.
Quick Reminder: No one is actually prevented from getting married. The marriage license is merely a contract pre-written by the Legislature.
