All in all, it was a pretty fair event. Romney and McCain took turns answering questions together from the audience, and they gave a nice performance. McCain did the jokes and the foreign policy; Romney handled the economics and the defense of free markets. (Which was necessary because three of the first four questions came from Occupy Wall Street-types.) It wasn’t a tour de force. There wasn’t a cavalcade of applause. But it wasn’t a disaster, either.

And when you’re inevitable, that’s all that really counts. At least in theory.
