Thanks for supplying the complete traceback.  But you should also 
tell the python version and what OS.  I'll guess python 3.3 on Linux. 

Finally,  what version tk are you running?  These widgets were 
introduced in tk 8.5

Since it failed on the second import, none of the rest of the code 
matters. However, since you're not running it from a terminal window, 
it's conceivable that your ide is affecting the result.
