    There is a reasonable chance that Trump will go down in history (many decades from now) as the President the came Washington and caused a shakeup equalivant to a earthquake greater than 8.0.

    What is a difference between a "good" shake up a "bad" shakeup?

    When is a shakeup too much, or too little?

    Bottomline when a shakeup occurs, it means that the vast majority don't like what is happening (like what is happening right now), even if the shakeup results in good things happening (Long term answer is unknown).

    Here is an example of a good shakeup that Trump could have done, but did not. He could have re-nominated Merrick Garland, and said "He deserves a up\down vote. If he is voted down, I will nominate someone else" Thus forcing both sides to debate it and vote. Or if possible, nominate two canidates, one being Merrick Garland, and the other being Neil Gorsuch.

    This issue is doing good things that shake things up. The nature of any shakeup is that current leaders (ie entrenched management) and vast majority of those in control resist any change, even if the change were to cure their own cancer.

    WWJD; yes I agree that your suggestion would help, but reality is another thing.
