Yes, you can.  It'll be hard to do in Python with just the standard library.
Luckily there are a few other (3rd-party) libraries already made that 
you can use.
Depending on how low-level you want to get, here are the libraries I've 
heard of,
in roughly the order of lowest to highest level.

Pygame + OpenGL

Those are the only 3d libraries I am aware of.  There are many more 2d 
libraries than that, and I suspect the same is true of 3D libraries..
Just ask Google for more information about each of these.
Feel free to ask us more questions, but if they're specific to a certain 
external library, you may not get the same caliber of response as you 
would if you asked on a message board specifically designed for that 
library.  For example, asking on pygame-users at seul.org is a good idea 
for pygame-related questions.
Hope that helps,
