I’m with Jonah. I have very low expectations for this debate, in part because Mitt’s top priority is passing the “presidential” test. Cool, calm, and collected.
And in part because the damage is essentially done: Assuming neither of these men have a Biden moment, the headlines will be Libya and Iran. All Mitt has to do is stay out of the way.
Then there’s the “Sunday show” variable. Bob Schieffer was one of the Sunday show hosts who was lied to by Susan Rice, right to his face and in front of his audience. The Romney/Ryan ticket has been ill-served by the moderators up until now.
Tonight, Mitt may have an “enemy of my enemy” for a friend.
