How to interpret google docs gdata atom.Content in python

I am trying to import data from a google spreadsheet and programatically create objects from it.  I have been able to see the data but cant understand how to process each filed.  I have attached the code I have so far.

How do I access the fields of data and create objects from them.  It looks like a dictionary object but I cant read the fields by name.


import gdata
import gdata.spreadsheet.service
import gdata.docs.service
import atom.core

gd_client = gdata.spreadsheet.service.SpreadsheetsService()
gd_client.email = 'firstname.lastname@gmail.com'
gd_client.password = 'password'
gd_client.source = 'my-exporter-1'
gd_client.ProgrammaticLogin()

key = 'biglongggoledockey'

def ListGetAction(gd_client, key, wksht_id):
  # Get the list feed
  feed = gd_client.GetListFeed(key, wksht_id)
  for line in feed.entry:
      print line.content.text

Open in new window

I searched for the spreadsheet object and found the example rather than the atom content object i was looking at
