CERTAINLY THE PRESS HONEYMOON IS OVER:

Obama vs. Pelosi: Can the President Work with the Democrats? (Jay Newton-Small, Feb. 04, 2009, Time)

[H]e had reason to hope that Democrats on Capitol Hill, while not going along with everything, would at least give him a honeymoon period. So it must be a bit of a jolt these days for Obama to frequently find himself so out of step with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, whose tacit support of Obama's campaign was felt long before her endorsement was made official.

On nearly every major issue — from the auto bailout and the stimulus bill to tax cuts and the delicate question of whether to investigate Bush Administration officials for crimes related to torture — Pelosi has voiced and even pushed through the House differing positions from the President, at times to the embarrassment of Democrats.


Nevermind how blunt the story itself is, check out the accompanying picture. We've come a long way since the days when they depicted him with a halo....
