You have to create your own HTTPHandler, set it to debug and install it in urllib2. Like this:
>>> import urllib2
>>> opener = urllib2.build_opener(h)
connect: (www.google.com, 80)
send: 'GET / HTTP/1.1\r\nAccept-Encoding: identity\r\nHost: www.google.com\r\nConnection: close\r\nUser-agent: Python-urllib/2.
reply: 'HTTP/1.1 200 OK\r\n'
header: Cache-Control: private

It's pretty obscure. I had to poke around in the source for a while before I could understand it.
