BeautifulSoup is AWESOME. I did a demo of BeautifulSoup in one of the 
Bangpypers meetups in March 2005. I use it regularly to screen scrape 
information from web pages.

Apart from that, my most used libraries are

- Python Imaging Library : Very nice library to manipulate images, 
generate dynamic graphs & charts etc
- ReportLab : Create PDF files
- mechanize : Nice library to automatically open web pages, fill up & 
submit forms etc
- pygoogle : Interact with google's search APIs. I use pygoogle a lot.

Stuff that I dont use, but looks interesting

- python-mock : http://python-mock.sourceforge.net/
- Construct : http://construct.wikispaces.com/
- Scapy : http://freshmeat.net/projects/scapy/
