They say that when you have a hammer, everything looks like a nail. When using Python, most everything is a nail.

using a tool like Python doesn't just influence the programmers, but the whole project!

Why spend weeks at a conference table arguing about different design alternatives if the programmers can supply several different implementations within a day?

Python is designed with the objective of making it easy to do the right thing, rather than making it difficult to do the wrong thing.

And Python just "felt" clean. I can't explain it very well, but Python's syntax just never got in the way of my reading, which left me free to concentrate all my attention on what the code was actually doing.
