This is the correct answer for a mouse click. The typical use case 
(disappearing placeholder) should also trigger, when somebody uses the 
tab key to set the focus to the window. This can be achieved by binding 
to the <FocusIn> event instead:

	search.bind("<FocusIn>", clear_search)

In addition, repeated clicking does not clear the text then.
