Shawna Thomas on today's White House press briefing where press secretary Jay Carney was asked about Augusta National's membership stance on women.
When asked by a reporter during Thursday's White House briefing whether the all-male golf club should admit women, White House press secretary Jay Carney said, "Well the president's answer to this question is yes. He believes, his personal opinion is that women should be admitted."
"I happened to have a discussion with him about this, so I know that that's his answer," Carney added. "It's obviously up to the club to decide. But his personal opinion is that women should be admitted to the club."
