52. goals change with circumstances

if my initial goal is to one a 3K, and then I do it and go, boy that was easy...I might raise my goal to a 5K and eventually possible a marathon.

They may have had one goal when Trump was at 5% and quite another one when he was the de facto nominee and then the actual nominee.

So yeah, the goal early on may have simply been to hurt HRC. (Although ultimately the only way you really hurt her is if she's not elected President--thus, arguably the true goal was to get the Republican nominee to win, whomever that was).

But once it became clear that a guy they already had compromised and dealt with was going to be the nominee, it was a gift horse stuffed inside a golden calf with the goose that laid the golden egg holding the reins.
