President Obama on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart

President Obama got a huge cheer from the audience in the first five minutes of his interview on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart over his support for LGBT rights.

“You want a president in the Oval Office whose going to say, ‘No, we’re not going to amend the Constitution for the first time to restrict rights for gay and lesbian couples,” Obama said, earning a big round of applause that interrupted his list of contrasts with Mitt Romney.

Obama said his record is “a strong story to tell,” especially on “social issues like ‘don’t ask, don’t tell.'”
