Python is more OOPy, but its warts(*) make it too much of a putoff for me (IMHO). If you want a more "pure" OO language, I'd look at Ruby. I'm playing with it now (specifically Ruby on Rails) and I'm liking it much more than when I toyed with Python.

Either way you should try and pick up at least one of the two; it never hurts to be at least conversant in another language (more resumé fodder :) and it'll help you improve as a programmer to be familiar with another way of looking at problems.

(*) Things that specifically bugged me were:

I know that some of these have been addressed, but on the whole Python's still . . . *shudder*. Ruby's much more yummy.
