But after Tory rebels supported by left-liberal opposition parties were able to pass an amendment to the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill tabled by former Attorney-General Dominic Grieve, handing Parliament a veto over the Brexit deal, she may not feel she has the strength to deliver even that.
"I hope very much [another rebellion] won't be necessary because if the government comes back with that date I'm sure the government will be defeated and I have no desire to defeat the government or be involved in the government's defeat a second time", a triumphant Grieve told BBC Newsnight, evidently confident of his ability to shut down the Brexit process at will following his initial success. Brexit secretary David Davis has promised to give MPs a final vote, and issued a statement Wednesday in a bid to head off the rebellion.

Mr Grieve said the Government was not listening to criticism.
Nintendo Switch has sold 10 million units worldwide in just nine months
By contrast, the Wii U sold just over 13 million units since its 2012 launch, before it was discontinued earlier this year. The other major reason for Nintendo's massive success with the Switch is a killer game line-up.
"We will put the final withdrawal agreement between the United Kingdom and the European Union to a vote in both houses of parliament before it comes into force", May told parliament.
Verhofstadt told the European parliament: "Yesterday, I spoke to [Davis] on the phone and he assured me that it is absolutely not his intention nor that of the British government to backtrack on their commitments".
AAA: Premium gas not worth the money for most vehicles
AAA says gas prices are expected to drop as supply strengthens and the demand for gasoline weakens throughout the winter. East Coast and Midwest states are seeing the largest drops in gas prices - as much as six cents - in the last week.
