Yup, it's definitely more than 8 bytes.  In addition to the comments you quoted, an in-memory datetime object also has a full Python object header, a member to cache the hash code, and a byte devoted to saying whether or not a tzinfo member is present.

Guessing Guido was actually thinking about the pickle size - but that's 10 bytes (for a "naive" datetime object).
