wxPython.

Long term (7 years), 3.  Middle-term, either, though you may need a library that is not yet ported to 3.  wxPython Phoenix is available in a not-yet-completely-done way and people are reporting using it to make function GUIs. It is not done yet, though, and some/all of the wx.lib widgets are not available in it. 

If I were you I'd go with Python 2.7 and wxPython 2.9.x, but other options are reasonable too.
