How can I sort this list in descending order?

timestamp = [
"2010-04-20 10:07:30",
"2010-04-20 10:07:38",
"2010-04-20 10:07:52",
"2010-04-20 10:08:22",
"2010-04-20 10:08:22",

"2010-04-20 10:10:37",
"2010-04-20 10:10:58",
"2010-04-20 10:11:50",
"2010-04-20 10:12:13",
"2010-04-20 10:12:13",
"2010-04-20 10:25:38"
]

Answer
timestamp.sort(key=lambda x: time.strptime(x, '%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S')[0:6],
