O'Donnell's prayer comments 'much about nothing,’ interviewer says

Delaware Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell told The Brody File that "God is the reason" she is running, and she believes that "prayer plays a direct role in this campaign." That interview will run today on Christian Broadcasting Network's The 700 Club.

Find out what the CBN journalist David Brody thinks before it airs.

American Morning's Kiran Chetry spoke with Brody about his exclusive sitdown interview with O'Donnell, and why he's not so shocked about her comments.

    I find it very interesting that she got this far. Cute girl with very little knowledge of any politics. She kept asking about the first Amendment with such disbelief. "Separation of church and state?", like she was some prom queen in high school.
    Now, she says God told her? This must be some miraculous event like GW who said the same thing. She believes in her faiith, but, I grew up Catholic, and first thing we learned is not to mess with witchcraft in early grades. Very mixed up woman.
    Kinda like Palin that had to be told, that vice presidents did not live in the white house. Where do these people come from?

    If you live in DE ask yourself this:

    Will Chris Coons hurt the economy?
    Will Christine ODonnell hurt the economy?

    Is Christine ODonnell truthful?
    Is Chris Coons truthful?

    Who would you trust leaving the keys to your house with?

    Christine O'Donnell sounds informed. I just don't get why she can't pray if she wishes to. She's free to believe in God as much as atheists are free to be atheists.

    I have a feeling that Ms. O'Donnell is unfairly being singled out because she does not fit into the usual mole. The Juan William NPR symdrome.

    Any woman, minority group, men who have been looked at as different should reject those who try to intimidate Christine O'Donnell. She has as much right as others to be who she is. This what America is about. Go Christine, exercise your rights and let the voters decide.

    If the people say they are not interested in politics, we can say it is the worst politic.
    We have to participate and vote, if don't do that, they don't have right afterwords to complain of the decisions the politics they did not chose take and affect them in the future.
    Now the problems that have being discussing are so important, that nobody has the right to ignore them, all people, and over all the democrats have the obligation to vote and so keep our majority in the Congress.

    I'm not shocked about her comments. I already knew O'Donnell is hopelessly god-soaked.
