ValidationError not caught in SelfHandlingForm

Bug Description

The SelfHandlingForm code is calling the clean() method in order to get the form's cleaned data. This is not only redundant (as the call to is_valid above takes care of cleaning the data), it's dangerous, since the standard way to trigger a validation error for a condition which applies to multiple fields in Django is to raise ValidationError in the clean() method, which is *not* caught in the Horizon code.

The correct way to access the data is to use form.cleaned_data after calling form.is_valid().
