At debate, Republican candidates spar over Islam

(CNN) – There weren't too many sharp differences among the Republican presidential candidates in Monday night's New Hampshire debate, but a crack did emerge over how Islam and Muslims ought to be treated in the United States.

The CNN debate opened with discussions on economic issues, but later veered toward faith-based matters like the role of religion in candidates' decision making, abortion, gay marriage – and how the United States ought to treat Muslims living within its borders.

    Post- Republican Debate.
    Once again the media dictates the candidates of their choice. Who they think are most likely to win.
    How do you hear new fresh ideas? Different solutions?
    There should be a sequential order of all participants in answering. Regardless of the question posed. Regardless if it is not in their field of expertise.
    Put them in the driver's seat.
