If he accompanied the default with a vigorous defense of his actions and a cogent critique of the stupidity that led him to such action he could drive a stake through the existing ideology. But he seems to be a consensus guy and shows few signs of understanding what is happening. He needs to start listening to much better advice. One source springs to mind.  :-)
