Newsweek declares Obama '1st gay president'
Newsweek magazine's cover story on same-sex marriage is stirring some controversy. The cover shows President Barack Obama with a rainbow halo, declaring him the first gay president.
The magazine hit newsstands Monday, five days after the president declared that he's personally in favor of same-sex marriage. The article itself is written by Andrew Sullivan, a prominent political writer and outspoken member of the gay community.
The story delves into Obama's past and asserts that given his background, Obama's declaration should come as no surprise.
