read lines without the line break character at the end?

When I do

   for line in fp:

the line string usually has a '\n' at the end. In many cases I don't want  
the line break character. I can trim it using

   if line.endswith('\n'): line = line[:-1]

Given I do it so frequently I wonder if there is some builtin way to say I  
don't wnt the line break character?
