wxPython has all the widgets you've described built into it. They also
have a very helpful mailing list. However, you should try the various
toolkits and see which one makes the most sense to you.

When I was first looking at GUIs, I tried Tkinter first. But it just
couldn't replicate the stupid UIs I needed to reimplement, so I went
with wxPython. I've heard good things about pyQT. If you want the
ultimate look-and-feel for Windows, you should go with IronPython.
