Many Democrats have been wondering where President Obama stands as the three main Democrat candidates vie for primary votes. Now it seems Obama has made a decision on what to do during the primary, and his former Secretary of State may not going to be too happy with his plan.

Obama has decided not to endorse anyone for the primaries including his former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. This is in contrast to Clinton who, even after her loss to Obama in 2008, came out full force during the president’s first run for the White House, and campaigned with him to help him beat John McCain.

Appearing on NBC’s Meet The Press on Sunday, Obama’s Chief of Staff, Denis McDonough, told host Chuck Todd that Obama has decided to stay out of the Democrat primary process.

Todd’s questioned whether Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’ vote in favor of legislation that would shield gun manufacturers from lawsuits over misuse of their guns may forfeit him the support from Obama during the election.

Obama has recently said his last year in office would be highly focused on guns, and has said he won’t support any Democrat candidate who isn’t 100 percent in line with his gun control agenda.

“So, when it comes down to the primary, obviously we will see who the nominee is at the end of that,” McDonough said. “That’s not our job. That’s the job of the party to make those decisions–and they’ll take a hard look at those agendas and the positions of those candidates and we’ll make some final decisions.”

Still, Chuck Todd persisted in questioning the Obama staffer on Sanders’ positions on guns. McDonough, though, wasn’t interested in answering directly and only said the president is looking at Sanders’ positions and if he liked what he saw he’d support him if he became the nominee.

“But it is remarkable, Todd insisted, “that the president is not committing to supporting one of the two major Democratic candidates because of the gun issue. Correct?”

McDonough replied saying Obama is going to be a “single issue voter” on guns and “it’s time to say enough is enough” on guns.

The White House staffer also said Obama will be “out there” to support whichever Democrat comes out on top after the primary process is over.

Todd, still pressing, said “he’s not going to use this gun issue as an excuse to say ‘I’m gonna support Secretary Clinton’?”

To that McDonough shook his head saying, “No, no.”
