I was able to determine a not so clean fix.

I ran the following commands to manually remove Python and Python2.6-minimal:

dpkg --remove --force-all python

dpkg --remove --force-all python2.6-minimal

I then downlaoded the latest Debian Packages and ran:

dpkg --install --force-all python_2.7.1-0ubuntu5_all.deb

dpkg --install --force-all python-minimal_2.7.1-0ubuntu5_all.deb

I now see the following for Python

root at TuckVPS:/# dpkg -l python 
| Status=Not/Inst/Conf-files/Unpacked/halF-conf/Half-inst/trig-aWait/Trig-pend
|/ Err?=(none)/Reinst-required (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)
||/ Name                              Version                           Description
ii  python                            2.7.1-0ubuntu5                interactive high-level object-oriented language (default version)

I then ran:
apt-get clean
apt-get autoclean
apt-get update
apt-get install -f

That fixed the final dependencies.
