Maybe he's positioning for another run at the White House in 2016?

You don't get the Republican nomination by being a moderate Reoublican. Given that the primary process runs first through Conservative NH (Republican side) and then takes a trip to the South, about the last thing you would do is endorse same sex marriage if you want to get more than 12 votes.
