The latest Republican presidential debate was held in New Hampshire on Tuesday night. Perhaps it was the mahogany table's influence but, unlike some of the more recent GOP debates, the atmosphere was cordial. The candidates steered clear of some of the more contentious topics — religion, race, immigration — that have been roiling the field. Instead, they expressed dissatisfaction with the Federal Reserve and health care reform, among other subjects. But what, in a debate that focused primarily on the economy, did they offer to potential voters?

Anna Sale, reporter for WNYC's It's a Free Country, shares some conversations she had with New Hampshire voters.

"Seven of these kids belong together... Seven of these kids are kinda the same... But one of these kids is doin' his own thing... Now it's time to play our game... It's time to play our game... Can you guess which kid is doin' his own thing?... before my song is done!" ... That's right PRI kids, Newt is the candidate with the most experience, intelligence, historical awareness, ideas, solutions and an extra helping of capability, while the other kids are playing in the playground.
