It's always better to post the *whole* code.
I assume you wrote:
import profile
But profile is the module name; you want to call the `run` function inside  
the profile module instead:

import profile

Look at the docs for the profile module at  
http://docs.python.org/lib/lib.html or typing help(profile) at the  
interpreter prompt.
