An entirely different approach would be to use a regular expression:

import re
if re.search("[abc]", "nothing expekted"):
    print "a, b or c occurs in the string 'nothing expekted'"

if re.search("[abc]", "something expected"):
    print "a, b or c occurs in the string 'something expected'"

Best regards,
