If the server requires a password then you need to supply one here.  If
you don't need a password (i.e. "psql template1" works) then try this.

import pg
dg = pg.DB("template1")

Note DB is preferred over connect but the main change is not to use localhost
to connect.  The default is to use a Unix socket rather than TCP/IP to
localhost and PostgreSQL treats that differently.  If localhost was just
used here for illustrative purposes and in fact you are connecting over
TCP/IP to another machine then look at pg_hba.conf to adjust permissions
or add a password to the connection call.
