problem with datetime

Relatively new to python.  I can get the following to work from the
command line:

Python 2.3.4 (#2, Aug 18 2004, 21:49:15)
[GCC 3.2] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import datetime
>>> d = datetime.datetime.today()
>>> d
datetime.datetime(2004, 12, 10, 6, 13, 28, 154472)
>>>

But when I try to run the following small program I get the following
results:

import datetime
d = datetime.datetime.today()
print d

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "datetime.py", line 1, in ?
import datetime
File "/home/bob/pyshow/datetime.py", line 3, in ?
d = datetime.datetime.today()
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'today'

Do I need to change a path?
Running python 2.3.4 on linux redhat 7.3.
