[word for word in words.split()] ?
No need for a list comprehensions here. How about this...
def reverseWords(words): return ' '.join(words.split()[::-1])

    It is sometimes hard to not use ::-1 once learnt, but you can use reversed which makes it clearer:
    >>> def reverseWords(word):
    ... 	return " ".join( reversed(word.split()) )
    ... 
    >>> reverseWords("  one   two three four    ")
    'four three two one'
