Hattie said...

From Wikipedia:
Occam's razor (or Ockham's razor) is a principle from philosophy. Suppose there exist two explanations for an occurrence. In this case the simpler one is usually better. Another way of saying it is that the more assumptions you have to make, the more unlikely an explanation is.
The simplest explanation is that all these people running for President are doing this because they want to be President.

LP vice-presidential candidate Weld is at heart a moderate Republican. (When and why he became Libertarian, I don't know.) Because his ticket has almost no chance of winning, Weld would rather devote as much effort as possible to ensuring a Hillary victory (a Trump presidency too awful to risk), without outright disavowing the Johnson candidacy.
