...has it been a bad thing for a politician to change their mind in the face of new facts?

i'm sick and tired of using the fact that a politician has changed their mind as an argument for why they are unfit for office.

when given new information, doesn't it make sense to adapt to that new information? isn't continuing on the current trajectory, even when it has been proven incorrect, exactly what we want to avoid in a leader?
