Might I suggest (guessing at the argument keywords here) :

    self.expiration_date = translate_date \
        TheText = find(response, 'MPNExpirationDate').text,
        ToFormat ='%Y-%m-%d',
        FromFormat ='%m%d%Y'

Presumably FromFormat should be localizable, rather than hard-coded.

See, that’s the kind of thing you notice when you think about the code in 
this way.
