Getting elected to the White House was a historic step for President Barack Obama, actually getting inside the building proved to be a little more difficult Tuesday.

President Obama was pictured today trying to re-enter the West Wing after meeting with Congressional members to lobby for his stimulus plan. The problem? He was standing in front of a series of window panes instead of the door, which was a few feet to his right, according to the Daily News.

The incident was reminiscent of a misstep by former President Bush, who once tried to exit a room while on a trip to China only to find the door locked.
