I don't know, but Debian has a package called python<version>-ssl,
which might be the same thing -- and they have it in the Non-US
part of the distro. In case you're not familiar with how Debian 
works, Non-US is mainly for package subject to the crypto export
restrictions: in order to be able to distribute them worldwide,
the packages are only available from servers outside the US. I don't
know what Red Hat does under those circumstances -- maybe they just
take it out of the distro.

Anyway, if you can't find an RPM, maybe you could grab the Debian
package and convert it with alien.
