    I respect what he's done, but I think he's actually more politically vulnerable now. He's on the defensive.

    It's sort of like what happens on the average Internet forum: Some poster says something that may not be politically correct or whatever and gets the hypersensitive crowd on his/her case trying to pressure him/her for an apology. If the apology does come, it doesn't really pacify the hypersensitive crowd -- they just smell blood in the water and pile on even more, now that the poster is in a vulnerable, defensive position.
