Obama Honeymoon?

Funny how the media continues to talk about a Barack Obama "honeymoon" as if the press were treating the candidate with kid-gloves.

Yet, what other candidate has been taking more media heat than Obama? He has been falsely accused of attending a madrassa in Indonesia, there are continuing press reports about his smoking habit, and there are constant questions about his identity.

Obama is under some of the most intense scrutiny any candidate might face this early in the race. Which of the other candidates is attracting so many questions as to their viablity for the presidency?

Maybe it's not that bad a thing though has it can help boost the candidate's name recognition and get people to find out more about the real Barack Obama. The real danger to the other candidates is that the people will actually see and hear this guy in action.
