I believe you want Browser.select_form(nr=0)

# Using mechanize
# http://wwwsearch.sourceforge.net/mechanize/

from mechanize import Browser

browser = Browser()
browser.open("http://example.com")
browser.select_form(nr=0)

browser['username'] = "me"
browser['password'] = "secret"

browser.submit()
