You can also use the string module to split:

>>> import string
>>> line = 'This is a test, short and sweet, of split.'
>>> string.split(line)
['This', 'is', 'a', 'test,', 'short', 'and', 'sweet,', 'of', 'split.']
>>> string.split(line)[4]
>>> string.split(line,'a test')
['This is ', ', short and sweet, of split.']
