  Well, what I would recommend is Tkinter - but I may be biased.  I hear
that PyGTK+ is actually very well suited to people with C, C++ backgrounds.
  I've been programming in Tkinter for a while now (6 months...still
semi-newbie :) and it is very nice.  As long as you get really object
oriented really fast, you should be fine.  However, there are some tricky
bits that you won't really get unless you have good documentation.  I'd
recommend searching around the python.org website or  buying a good book on
the subject.
