There's got to be an easy way to do this

I am reading in a phone number field and would like to throw away everything
except the digits. Being an old C programmer, I know how I would do this.
Even with my limited knowledge of Python, I know how I would do it:
for c in phone_number:
if c in digits:
stripped_phone += c
but with all of the data structure support native to Python, I'm sure there
is "an obvious way" to do it (perhaps it's because I'm not Dutch:-).
