LONDON (AP) -- Anyone looking on Page 3 of the British Sun tabloid today for the usual topless model was in for a shock.
There's a picture of Barack Obama -- fully clothed, of course, and looking dignified.
The type of photo that usually on Page 3 -- the models have become known as the "Page 3 girls" -- have helped bring the Sun more than 3 million daily readers.
And today's choice of photo doesn't represent a change in policy. A newspaper spokeswoman says half-naked beauties will still vastly outnumber fully-clothed politicians in the future.
