You can find the source distribution of the current version at the usual
place:

http://www.python.org/download/

http://www.python.org/dev/

If you are only interested in one module, you can browse the CVS tree (see
"Outside Links" on the above page). The datetime implementation is here:

http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/python/python/dist/src/Modules/datetimemodule.c
