I was just about to suggest loading pdb...

And of course there is also a graphical debugger in IDLE as 
well as PythonWin.

The paper version of my book contains a chapter 
(not on the web site) on how to use pdb to debug a script.
pdb has its limitations but if you are used to gdb then its 
not too bad.

(pdb) help

is your friend.
