Former presidential candidate Gov. Jon Huntsman stopped by the New Hampshire Institute of Politics at Saint Anselm College to talk about politics, foreign affairs, and the future of America on Nov. 25.

At times, Huntsman sounded like a university professor; other times, he sounded like a former political candidate, humbled by the people he met but critical of the horserace coverage of the national media and the debate process that he likened to a circus.

The former governor of Utah said he learned a lot from listening and talking to the people in his state, something governors had to do every day. He said it seemed to be much different in Washington.

Huntsman said he was not in New Hampshire to talk about a future campaign but hinted that there were many things that needed to be done to fix the country and get it back on track.

Here are some video clips from the talk that focused on the New Hampshire Primary and the political process.
