I agree with Reggie's comments. It should run forever until you enter the 
correct password.

Suggested code simplification (2 lines shorter and easier to read):

password = 'foobar'
for i in range(3):
     password = raw_input('password')
    if password == 'Unicorn':
         print 'welcome in'
     print 'man thats a hard one'
