Depends on exactly what you are asking, Greenlight has no requirements at all on that front since you do not actually release your game on Greenlight, as for Steam I think it will work with anything that can be run with a .exe or platform equivalent native executable regardless of what language it was written in, however the Steamworks API (which is optional) only supports C++, but if you want to use the Steamworks API from another language you can usually create a C++ wrapper DLL to expose the API functions you need to your language of choice.

So if you compile your python code to a .exe (see http://effbot.org/zone/python-compile.htm) you should be able to distribute the game via Steam. I'd advise using C++ or at least C# for a game though, interpreted languages like python can be quite a lot slower, even when compiled, so they aren't as suitable for games.
