Define good? I think it depends almost entirely on context.

Python is reportedly a good beginner language in a lot of situations
but not all.

I'm very pleased that my first real introduction to programming (other
than a few BASIC tutorials) was C++. While C++ didn't make a lot of
sense for a long time everything else I've tried since has been much
easier to grasp for having been 'forced' to learn certain concepts
while learning C++.
