This stance puts a mighty strain on credibility don't you think? Would not a discriminating person that values integrity resign from such a position?
Not necessarily. There can be cultural issues at play, personality/temperament issues at play, and (given that we are not dealing with moral/legal issues such as murder, embezzlement or coercion), it seems to me there is also room here, as in many places, for "the loyal opposition" to continue within his or her role while cogently articulating a dissenting position.
