Thanks guys, I found how to handle this:

for id in rows:
	#Says Unicode, but it's actually not
	#print type(id[1])
	#<type 'unicode'>

		print id[1];
	except UnicodeEncodeError:
		print "Not unicode"
			print id[1].encode('iso8859-15')
			print "iso"
		except UnicodeEncodeError:
			print id[1].encode('cp1252')
			print "Windows"

Thank you.
