MySQLdb not running on Mac 10.7

I am trying to install MySQL-Python (MySQLdb) locally on my Mac and I am having trouble. I have been working on this for HOURS and I continue to get this error:

>>> import MySQLdb
/Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/MySQL_python-1.2.3-py2.7-macosx-10.7-intel.egg/_mysql.py:3: UserWarning: Module _mysql was already imported from /Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/MySQL_python-1.2.3-py2.7-macosx-10.7-intel.egg/_mysql.pyc, but /Users/dp/Code/MySQL-python-1.2.3 is being added to sys.path
Traceback (most recent call last):

ImportError: dlopen(/Users/dp/.python-eggs/MySQL_python-1.2.3-py2.7-macosx-10.7-intel.egg-tmp/_mysql.so, 2): Library not loaded: libmysqlclient.18.dylib
Referenced from: /Users/dp/.python-eggs/MySQL_python-1.2.3-py2.7-macosx-10.7-intel.egg-tmp/_mysql.so
Reason: image not found

I am trying to set up a python 2.7/Django/MySQL development environment and keep running into this problem. I have a feeling this could a problem with my .bash_profiles PATH so I am also including that below:

export PATH="/usr/local/mysql/bin:$PATH"

Thank you!!!
