Python & clipboard

Howdy y'all,

I am trying to find a function which gets clipboard data (on Win98). I have 
been looking at the win32clipboard module, but it seems that the best I can 
get is a handle to an object containing clipboard data. I also looked into 
Tkinter, and I found clipboard_append and clipboard_clear methods, but no 
such thing as clipboard_get. 

Does anyone know how to do this? 

Blessed be,
