If you tuned into the GOP primary debate in New Hampshire on Monday night, it was likely for one of two reasons: Either you are a political junkie like me, and campaign season brings about the kind of irrational excitement that is usually reserved for national sporting events, or you're a frustrated American voter who wanted to get to know the Republican candidates a little better.
