Newsweek declares Obama 'first gay president' with rainbow halo cover

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.
