Yes, tkinter is the official one, but many believe it should be wxPython
( .  wxPython is an extremely good x-platform
implementation.  It is fast, with a native look and feel.

wxpython also has some good ide packages.  Boa is pretty good.
PythonCardPrototype is also very good.

If you use rational rose, I've started work on a python implementation.  It
will also work with visual modeller.
