Yes We Can

Cart before horse, chickens before hatching - Barack Obama whomps up a seal before the nomination.
The seal's also got a terrifically impressive motto in Latin -- "Vero Possumus" -- which means "The possum speaks truthily."

Obama seal

No, just kidding. It actually means "Truly we're able," which translates as "Si se puede," which translates as "Yes, we can." Obama is clearly copying George W. Bush's Texas gubernatorial reelection motto from 1998.

All respect to the LA Times, more people know it as part of the catch phrase used by this fellow:

"Can we fix it?" "Yes we can!"

I'm pretty sure Team Obama didn't have Bob Builder in mind. I sure hope they didn't.
