Or use mxDateTime and let the parser do all the heavy lifting
for you:

>>> from mx.DateTime import Parser
>>> t = Parser.DateTimeFromString('2000-01-12T12:13:14Z')
>>> t
<mx.DateTime.DateTime object for '2000-01-12 12:13:14.00' at 2b5c19c03500>
>>> t = Parser.DateTimeFromString('2000-01')
>>> t
<mx.DateTime.DateTime object for '2000-01-01 00:00:00.00' at 2b5c18fa12f0>
>>> t = Parser.DateTimeFromString('2000-01-12')
>>> t
<mx.DateTime.DateTime object for '2000-01-12 00:00:00.00' at 2b5c19c03500>
