Because then Corday may be back in the mix. As long as she is there. he assumes he has a voice in the writer's room. If not for the threat of Corday interference. Whitesell would be HW and Higley would be gone.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
I think that Scott wanted Philip/Morgan, Higley wanted Philip/Chloe, and then Tomlin wants Philip/Stephanie. It was obvious, before Tomlin/Whitesell got total control on the show, that Higley was heading for Philip/Chloe again, and also she seemed to want a Chelsea/Nick/Melanie triangle, maybe Lumi again, amongst some other things.
Then Tomlin seemed to scrap most of that...but its obvious that Higley and Scott majorly disagreed on visions. Now, I honestly think Tomlin and Higley don't see eye to eye either, but Ed and Higley's struggles seemed to be very, very bad...Ed's best time was when he and Hogan were working together....2008 was just a mess for Days.
I think Higley is just there in name only now. I think they keep her on just to keep Corday away because for some stupid reason he likes Higley and trusts her so they leave Higley on the team just to sit there while Tomlin and Whitesell handle things. I think Higley takes it because she knows she can't get work anywhere else so she may as well just accept it.
It's clear Philip/Morgan and Chloe/Lucas were all Scott's idea. You could tell where Higley was going and then everything just stopped and became forced.
I don't understand why they don't just demote her to staff writer, she worked as that for many years before.
