Many have suggested Pence used this debate to set up his own candidacy for 2020, and many more have wished for the top and bottom halves of the Republican ticket to be reversed. For the time being, neither is happening.

But if nothing else, Pence used the debate to show, as conservative pundit Kayleigh McEnany said on CNN’s post-debate coverage, that “Donald Trump had the judgement to pick Mike Pence.” If he had that judgement to do that, he may have some more, somewhere.

The question is whether voters—the elusive undecideds, especially—will have more chances to see evidence of it before November 8.
