Take Your Own Side In A Fight

If Dem fortunes are improving because of anything they have done - instead of just circumstaces (Dobbs) - I think that generally it is because they are uncharacteristically seeming to do so at the moment (including on abortion).

One can overestimate the appeal of being perceived as the dominant player, but one can also certainly overestimate the appeal of being a mushy compromiser.

Substance matters too, of course.
