The pressure is being put on President Barack Obama to evolve on his stance of supporting gay marriage as four former Democratic National Committee chairs made a public statement today calling for marriage equality to be included in the party's 2012 platform.

The former DNC chairs are Howard Dean, Donald Fowler, Steve Grossman and David Wilhelm. They are joining Freedom to Marry's campaign, "Democrats, Say I Do."

The Democratic National Convention takes place Sept. 3 in Charlotte, N.C., where the state is currently undergoing a war to fight off a ban on gay marriage.
