I would start with removing the redundant parens.

print('{:<12s}{:>12s}'.format(temp_list[0],temp_list[3]))

But then I would simplify it further.

print('{0[0]:<12s}{0[3]:>12s}'.format(temp_list))

You can do a similar thing with dictionaries.

print('{0[data0]:<12s}{0[data3]:>12s}'.format(temp_dict))

You can even mix and match.

print('{0[0]:<12s}{1[data3]:>12s}'.format(temp_list, temp_dict))

Finally, if this is in a loop do this.

FMT = '{0[0]:<12s}{0[3]:>12s}'.format
for temp_list in GetLists(): print FMT(temp_list)

Cheers.
