After having written both synchronous and asynchronous servers and 
clients using Python sockets, I've been very happy with the asyncore 
standard library.  I should probably give twisted a shot, but writing 
with asyncore is so easy that I'm hard-pressed to even bother.  I also 
get a sick satisfaction in implementing protocols...but maybe that is 
just me.
