Letter: No pledges, please

I am opposed to all pre-election pledges including “The Pledge.” Any such pledge renders the election process mute and debate useless. All candidates and voters have starting positions, but we should never close our minds ahead of time. If it a matter of a deeply held conviction (i.e. capital punishment), then predetermined judgment is appropriate because such judgments are not subject to change as a result of debate.
