Ahh, got it!  Actually this guy got it:

http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-list/1999-November/015613.html

Basically I named the source file itself odbc.py which was confusing python. 
One other note: it still didn't work until I explicitely specified a
database, even though it was the default database, in the DSN.  In using
Access to connect to a remote Postgres, I was able to leave "database"
blank
and it picked up the default.  Not so for python ODBC.
