I think they're both good players and I'm having a hard time believing that McCullum would be that petty as to try to oust the best player in the team from captaincy. OTOH, it's hard to believe that this would even be considered had McCullum given his full support.
Supposing everyone in the team hates Taylor, and everyone loves McCullum...Taylor is still the right man for the job.
This isn't a popularity contest.
It doesn't actually matter whether the young players look up to McCullum or Taylor.
Do they think the young Aussies don't admire Michael Hussey? Of course they ****ing do, that doesn't mean they're going to try and get Clarke replaced does it?
What a joke.
