Art (of Politics ?) and Nature's Art

Yet nature is made better by no mean
But nature makes that mean. So over that art
Which you say adds to nature is an art
That nature makes. You see, sweet maid, we marry
A gentler scion to the wildest stock,
And make conceive a bark of baser kind
By bud of nobler race. This is an art
Which does mend nature--change it rather, but
The art itself is nature.

From The Winter's Tale:4:4

Is that not precisely (and how precise, as always, Shakespeare's words!) what we seek to do in changing that of nature's power within to a gentler scion.

First in line to vote. Maybe 25 people in line when I stepped out of the booth. Work to get people out to vote now, a break for classes in the afternoon, back to GOTV till the polls close at eight.
