Entering username & password automatically using urllib.urlopen

I am trying to retrieve a password protected page using:

get = urllib.urlopen('http://password.protected.url"').read()

While doing this interactively, I'm asked for  the username, then the
password at the terminal.
Is there any way to do this non-interactively? To hardcode the user/
pass into the script so I can get the page automatically?

(This is not a cracking attempt, I am trying to retrieve a page I have
legitimate access to, just doing it automatically when certain
conditions are met.)
