<p>On Monday&rsquo;s <em>CBS This Morning</em>, co-host Norah O&rsquo;Donnell asked <em>New York Times</em> reporter Jodi Kantor about how the Supreme Court&rsquo;s gay marriage ruling would impact 2016 Republican candidates: <strong>&ldquo;...none of the 13 Republican candidates who are running for president have embraced gay marriage. How does that affect the ongoing presidential campaign?&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>Kantor replied: <strong>&ldquo;I think those candidates are in a tough spot</strong>....They were saying that they disagreed with the decision but they were very respectful everyone, etcetera, etcetera. <strong>Because they don&#39;t really want to be seen as throwbacks, they don&rsquo;t want to be seen as backwards looking.&rdquo;</strong></p>
