Did Newsweek go too far in calling Barack Obama 'The First Gay President'?

There's a new controversy involving the cover of a national news magazine.

This time, it's Newsweek.

The issue hits newsstands Monday with a photo showing President Barack Obama with a rainbow-colored halo to promote a feature story titled The First Gay President.

Last week, he made history by supporting gay marriage. The cover story is written by Andrew Sullivan, a popular — and openly gay — political blogger.
