Addressing the recent controversy regarding Amanda Marcotte and Melissa McEwan, John Edwards just issued a statement that basically says he doesn't want their type of vitriole associated with his campaign. He also said, however, that he believes "in giving everyone a fair shake". So apparently he gave them a good talking to, but will continue to keep them on his staff. This is probably the most politically expedient solution; try to appease the more moderate lefts, but keep the nutroots off his back by not getting rid of Marcotte and McEwan.
