Fired and rehired?

Good article, but I'm pretty sure Salon's War Room is the only source for the report that Marcotte or McEwan were ever fired. There's no independent confirmation that there was in fact a fire/rehire scenario rather than a simpler evaluation scenario.

The fact that Edwards posted a statement about it

...signals the fact that something was decided, and that something happened within the campaign. Is there an important distinction you're trying to make? It seems to me the real significance is in the politics, not whether actual pink slips were handed out, threatened, debated or simply imagined.
