Vice President Dick Cheney surprised an Iowa audience by saying he disagreed with President Bush's position on gay marriage. The vice president, noting that he has a gay daughter, said he believes each state should determine laws governing marriage. The president has backed a constitutional amendment restricting marriage to heterosexual couples. NPR's Brian Naylor reports.
