@Danielle: Are you sure you are launching the correct IDLE?  In a terminal window, enter the following shell commands and report the output:

  cd /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/
  file lib/python2.7/lib-dynload/_tkinter.so
  otool -L lib/python2.7/lib-dynload/_tkinter.so

That last should launch idle for 2.7.  Quit it then in the Finder try double-clicking on the IDLE in /Applications/Python 2.7
