Since the OS relies on it, you don't dare stray from whatever 
Red Hat provides, at least as far as the whole system is concerned.

So if you need to use some other version of Python, even a newer
version of 2.7, consider miniconda/anaconda in combination with
their conda program to install other versions of Python 2 or 3,
per project. This is separate from what is available system wide.
IIRC, conda is like virtualenv + pip, and also allows one to install
a version of Python in the virtual environment.
