Rotate TextElement in Layout View

I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to rotate a text element 90 degrees using python. I know I am able to do it by hand in ArcMap, but i was hoping to find a way to automatically rotate the text using python code. Any suggestions?

The way that Esri suggests is to keep a template graphic element located off the layout page that has 90 degrees set. You clone an element and edit the text with arcpy.mapping functions on Layout Elements.
Have a look at the help for Layout Elements. There is a sample script for exactly this case so I won't bother to duplicate it here.
