I recommend PyQt because of the easy to use designer progam that speeds 
up GUI development. Designer allows you to design your UI visually and 
establish handlers for events. It outputs a .ui file.

You then call 'pyuic myui.ui >' to turn your ui into a python class.

The Qt framework is very straightforward to use as well and maintains good documentation on the framework.

Check it out:

PS: You can also use your .ui files to output C++ classes with 'uic' 
instead of 'pyuic'. I also think there is a 'puic' to create Perl code. 
So, that single ui description can be used in multiple languages.

My two cents,
