Obama gets sympathy from the pulpit

From USA Today-

President Obama and his family attended church services today, and the president received some political sympathy from the pulpit.

At one point, the Rev. Luis Leon of St. John's Episcopal Church spoke of the expectations placed on Obama when he came to office -- how people expected a "messiah" who could cure all of the nation's ills.

Now we know it's not so easy, Leon said.

"This is not a political diatribe by the way," he added. "It's simply stating the obvious."

From the pool report:

At 11:03 a.m., temperature is chilly, but the sky is crystal clear as the smartly dressed first family leaves the White House and start their walk -- holding hands -- through Lafayette Park toward St. John's Episcopal Church on 16th Street N.W. Malia especially stands out in pinkish Sunday dress with white trim at the bottom and burgundy leggings. First Lady is wearing beige-looking heavy coat, while Obama's outfit is his customary dark.
