Python Dates and Times in Python (2014) Dates and Times Time Tango

Trouble with datetime combine

Hey, I'm having trouble with my code where I'm trying to combine date and time. I have a feeling it has to do with using the wrong arguments on datetime.combine. I looked up the documentation and it seems that I may have to pull the variables off my date and time separately, then input them back into the combine method. Is there a simpler way to go about this?

import datetime

def time_tango(date, time):
  d = datetime.datetime.strptime(str(date), '%x')
  t = datetime.datetime.strptime(str(date), '%X')
  return datetime.datetime.combine(datetime.date(d), datetime.time(t))

Nevermind, I just used the combine method on the date and the time. It was much simpler than I had anticipated.
