House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner said on Sunday he cannot imagine ever supporting gay marriage even though Senator Rob Portman, his friend and fellow Ohio Republican, very publicly reversed his opposition last week. Portman became the most prominent Republican lawmaker to back same-sex marriage, doing so two years after his son told him he is gay. "Rob is a great friend and a long-time ally," Boehner, the top Republican in Congress, told ABC's "This Week."
