I manage to get either time or date but not both inside the same object .
And I don't know how to use plot with two object (one for the time and the other for the date).
Thanks for the answer.

If you are passing in datetime objects for plotting on the x-axis, you
can format the tick labels any way you want:

import matplotlib.ticker

formatter = ticker.DateFormatter('%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S')

See the date_demo*.py examples at http://matplotlib.sf.net/examples
