I'm guessing that you want to split on ",", but want the quoted section to be a single token? 
Have you looked at the CSV module (http://docs.python.org/3/library/csv.html)?

If my guess is wrong, or you're having difficulties with the csv module, a more specific question will help you get the answer you're looking for.
