WASHINGTON (AP) -- Presdent Barack Obama says he'd already decided to come out for gay marriage before Vice President Joe Biden publicly endorsed it.

Obama tells ABC in an interview that he wasn't worried about being upstaged by his vice president on the volatile social issue. At one point, he says, "Would I have preferred to have done this my own way? .... Sure.''

But Obama quickly adds, "All's well that ends well.'' He tells ABC's Robin Roberts that he "already made a decision to take this position'' before Biden made his comments in response to a question asked on a nationally broadcast interview Sunday. Education Secretary Arne Duncan endorsed gay marriage on Monday, two days before Obama's statement.

Obama says he didn't revise his position to achieve any political advantage.
