WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) - President Barack Obama is repeating his personal views of gay marriage but declined to say if his administration would get involved in the Supreme Court case that would overturn California's ban on gay marriage.

In response to a question by ABC7 (http://bit.ly/XNFq1k ) news anchor Dan Ashley if the administration would try to urge the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Proposition 8, the president acknowledged that the "solicitor general is still looking at this."

But the president did not say what, if any action his administration would take in the matter.

President Obama told Ashley that his personal views were that "same sex couples should have the same rights and be treated like everybody else."

Ashley is Washington where he is the only San Francisco Bay area reporter provided access to interview the president.

During the interview, Obama discussed other issues, including the divides between the political parties and the economy.
