minidom, drilling down to a low node in one line?

I hope this isn't completely redundant...

I'm working with an example found of parsing XML with xml.dom.minidom
and am having some issues getting a node down three levels.

Here is the tutorial:

Given the XML:
<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<ref id="bit">

How do I address the that = 0?

The only way I figured out is to recursively childNode from the parsed
down (as following the guide).  Is there no way to simply address the
item by something along the lines of:

xmldoc = minidom.parse("example.xml")

Any input or direction is appreciated.
