Try the pytz module.

import datetime
import pytz
import time

utc = pytz.utc
zones = { 'PST': pytz.timezone('US/Pacific'), }

aware_dt = datetime.datetime(tzinfo=zones['PST'],
    *time.strptime("10:29:52 Feb 29, 2008 PST",
    "%H:%M:%S %b %d, %Y %Z")[0:6])
print aware_dt.strftime("%H:%M:%S %b %d, %Y %Z")
print utc.normalize(aware_dt.astimezone(utc)).strftime("%H:%M:%S %b
%d, %Y %Z")

# 10:29:52 Feb 29, 2008 PST
# 18:29:52 Feb 29, 2008 UTC
