When you do this:

  import datetime

you have to do this

  d = datetime.datetime()

And when you do this:

  from datetime import datetime

you have to do this:

  d = datetime()

You evidently did this:

  from datetime import datetime

then this:

  d = datetime.datetime()

which is not allowed.

If you want to self-comply, I recommend always doing it the first way.
