Christine O’Donnell Dabbled in Witchcraft
In the state of Delaware, Tea Party Republican candidate for the Senate, Christine O’Donnell, made the news by her admission that in the early years of her life she had dabbled in witchcraft. The media descended into a howl that still echoes around the country. From my perspective, what O’Donnell did in her youth should have little if any bearing on her campaign for public office. While I disagree with O’Donnell on several political issues, I certainly think it is unfortunate she is being judged for something she messed around with many years ago. Most people would not want to be held responsible for things they did as teenagers. Politicians should be no exception.
