Slow Python - what can be done?

What I am used to is how you can declare variables in Common Lisp to be 
static; when you are done building your system, you can then go through 
and optimize for speed.

Then again, Lisp is a very industrial language with plenty of experience 
and development under its belt - python is fairly new.

Still, I am impressed by Pythons abstraction and libraries. I'm going to 
look into different ways of speeding up my code through general 
optimization and perhaps some C code.

Thanks again for your help, all.
