You could install 'python26' from EPEL, presumably this does not
break /usr/bin/python since it installs the new version as
/usr/bin/python2.6. Then as the user which runs Galaxy, do something
$ mkdir $HOME/bin
$ ln -s /usr/bin/python2.6 $HOME/bin/python
$ export PATH=$HOME/bin:$PATH
$ echo 'export PATH=$HOME/bin:$PATH' >> $HOME/.bash_profile
