  You need to differentiate between statement and expressions.  Here's some
dodgy code I just knocked out, it should at least get you going in the right

    def runPythonCode(s, globals = {}, locals = None):
        if locals is None:
            locals = {}
            code = compile(s, '<string>', 'eval')
            code = compile(s, '<string>', 'single')
        result = eval(code, globals, locals)
        return result
