Installing Python

I'm on MacOS 10.6.8, learning to use Amazon Web Services' Simple Storage Service's Command Line Interface (AWS S3 CLI).

They say in their documentation that their CLI needs Python version 2.7 or 3.4.  I checked in terminal:

$ python --version
Python 2.6.1

So I ran the python-2.7.9-macosx10.6.pkg downloaded from and now...

$ python --version
Python 2.7.9
$ aws --version
aws-cli/1.7.22 Python/2.6.1 Darwin/10.8.0 seems to me that the AWS CLI thinks it is still using the old version.  

Will this cause problems later?  Can it be fixed?
