FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty:
In a little over an hour, all eyes will be on Christine O'Donnell - the Tea Party-backed, Sarah Palin-backed Senate candidate from Delaware. She scored a major upset last month to win the Republican Party's nomination.

O'Donnell will face off tonight in a debate for the first time against her opponent, Democrat Chris Coons. Polls show Coons with a 19-point lead over O'Donnell. Only 35 percent of voters say O'Donnell is qualified to be a senator, compared to 64 percent for Coons.
And part of that is due to the fact that there are a lot of questions about O'Donnell's past and her lack of experience.
There are several lingering financial issues, like O'Donnell's former campaign manager accusing her of paying rent with campaign donations. She says there's "no truth to it."
This debate has potential.
For the most part, O'Donnell has refused to talk to the national media since her win, thanks to advice from Sarah Palin.
So, it's reasonable to believe that there's a lot people would like to know about O'Donnell… in what has fast become one of the most-watched races in the country.
Here’s my question to you: What question would you ask Delaware Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell?
Interested to know which ones made it on air?
Jan in Lancaster, Pennsylvania writes:
Ask her what her plan is for anything: To improve the economy, end the war in Afghanistan, jobs, fiscal responsibility of government, etc. Haven't heard anything of substance from this woman yet. The only thing we know is that she is not a "witch"… right?
Ben in Boston writes:
I would ask all the candidates the same question: How will you get jobs growing at 250,000 per month? That's all that counts.
Harold in Alaska writes:
What are the names of magazines and newspapers you read on a regular basis?
Dave in Orlando writes:
Whatcha got cookin' in your cauldron, toots?
Katie in Illinois writes:
I would ask O'Donnell why she has such low regard for our political system. Just by running it is obvious she thinks it is all a big joke.
Judy in California writes:
Nothing, she is not qualified for elected office, period. End of story.
Why do you think that Democratic liberals (who like to portray themselves as "nice" and "kind" people) are so intolerant of Republican or conservative women that they need to demean, degrade and demonize women like you and Sarah Palin?
Jack, My questions would be: What specific experience do you have that qualifies you to be a U.S. Senator?
Are you a good witch? Or a bad witch?
