Perhaps from May's perspective this election got rid of dead wood(Clegg and Salmond), and provides her with the opportunity to build a 3D personality free from the Headmistress tag and free from being the first woman PM. Thatcheritis , guilt ridden voter wobble post Brexit vote, unnecessary manifesto demands and a high risk Ed Balls strategy for a snap election in Brown's very early days of Prime Ministerialship in 2008(which he chickened out of) handed May a brutal landing , but an opportunity as a sharp learning curve. Bloody Blair has left us a legacy of hung Parliaments or electoral indecision, and Boris eyes are narrowing. But May is an asset who is more than standing up to Trump, and better placed to win some more credit.
