Robert Stacy McCain has already noted that the big complaint against Christine O'Donnell is that "She Turned Me Into A Newt," but I don't think enough has been made of the timeline on this witchcraft-dabbling. At the time, First Lady Hillary Clinton was holding seances and trying to channel Eleanor Roosevelt. O'Donnell should just say she took Hillary as a role-model and figured it was all right.
OTOH, any 19 y/o who was trying to contact the spirit of Eleanor Roosevelt would be too weird for words, so maybe she should not put too much weight on that angle.
It bears remembering that for all the sneers - and who knows, the woman may be a flake, I haven't looked into it - she has as much scientific training as any Democrat in the Senate. Which is college introductory level. The Republicans have three physicians and a veterinarian, so they're ahead of her there.
