Where did you get Node from? It works for me:

>>> from xml.dom.minidom import Node
>>> dir(Node)
['__doc__', '__getattr__', '__init__', '__module__', '__nonzero__', '_debug', '_get_firstChild', '_get_lastChild', '_makeParentNodes', 'allnodes', 'appendChild', 'childNodeTypes', 'cloneNode', 'debug', 'hasChildNodes', 'insertBefore', 'isSameNode', 'namespaceURI', 'normalize', 'removeChild', 'replaceChild', 'toprettyxml', 'toxml', 'unlink']

xml.dom.Node is a base class of xml.dom.minidom.Node.
