Problem Commenting within Filehandle Iteration

Hi all,
I have the following code:
import sys               
import re                

ham_count = 0            
spam_count = 0
myfile = open('full/index')
for line in myfile.readlines():
    p = re.compile('ham')
    m = p.match(line)
    if m:
        print line,
        #print 'SPAM -- %s' % line

Sometime while developing/debugging the code we usually 
put in such situation. Where expression under "else"
is not yet supplied, yet we would like see the printout of the
previous "if" condition. 
Notice that I wanted to comment out the #print line there.
However I found problem with myfile.close(), with identation error.
This error doesn't occur when commenting (#) is not in use.
Why so?  Is there away to do the commenting in correct way
under this circumstances?
