Voters aren't going to listen to Christine O'Donnell's policy positions until she puts to rest questions about her past, according to Karl Rove.

On his Friday show, Bill Maher aired a clip of O'Donnell admitting that she had "dabbled" in witchcraft when she was younger.

"I dabbled into witchcraft -- I never joined a coven," O'Donnell said in the 1999 Politically Incorrect clip. "But I did, I did. I dabbled into witchcraft. I hung around people who were doing these things. I'm not making this stuff up. I know what they told me they do."

"One of my first dates with a witch was on a satanic altar, and I didn't know it. I mean, there's little blood there and stuff like that," she said.

When asked about how O'Donnell should handle the revelations, Rove said she should explain herself and move on.

"She needs to talk to the people of Delaware," he told Fox News' Chris Wallace.

"You know, in southern Delaware, where there are a lot of church-going people, they'll probably want to know what is that all about."

"She has to explain it and put it in the most sympathetic light and move on. She can't simply say these are unfactual and not true and ignore them. Go to my website and ignore them. I don't think the people of Delaware have or are accepting that as a reasonable explanation. Until they do, they are going to be resistant to hearing the bigger, broader more important message," he said.
