Open letter to John Edwards

John,

As everyone is well aware, yesterday's article in the NY Times basically spoke of a gentleman who wants you to dance when he says "Dance!"

Clearly, you knew what Amanda and Melissa could bring to your table. Otherwise, the job offers would not have been made. You were aware of their dedication, loyalty, talent, and mastery of the written word. You knew how inflential they could be in motivating the blogging/netroots community. Your knowledge and feelings about these individuals cannot be nullified overnight by one person's statement.

As of late, our president has shown that sticking to one's guns is a bad thing; it's a sign of stubborness and refusal to accept reality. You have the opportunity to redefine how one sticks to his guns, by doing the right thing. It's not about one person's inane complaint. It's about your confirming how great a job Amanda and Melissa could both do for you and your campaign, and showing that you believe in what the netroots community could do for you.

Please consider doing the right thing and stand by your original decision to keep them on board.

Jon

Disgusting.

I haven't seen any official post or release that unequivocally states what the situation is. I guess we're still in the holding pen for now.
