I have two suggestions:

First, it looks to me that pandas has a win64 Psycopg2 build on
I would try installing this before using pg8000 in pip. I don't use
anaconda personally so I maybe leading you down the wrong path.

Second, when people have the problem you described above with imports not
working from within Idle but working from the command line it's almost
always you'r running two different python installations. You can start Idle
form the command line like such `python -m idlelib` and it will ensure that
you are running with the same version of python as the command line.

I hope this helps.
