If you've installed a recent Red Hat based distribution(*), most likely python 
is already installed on your system, since a lot of tools (including yum, the 
package manager) are written in python. Just run 'python' from the prompt to verify.

It is possible though that you do not have the entire python standard library 
installed. To do this, simply execute 'yum install python-devel'. Assuming that 
your VM is able communicate with a yum repository (over the network or on the 
host), this command would install the set of standard python libraries/modules.

(*) There hasn't been a distribution named Red Hat Linux for a while now, 
there's either - Red Hat Enterprise Linux (ie: RHEL) or Fedora.
