Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

To me this suggests that someone waited to have a full hand count and then manipulated the machine count to match the percentages before reversing them. This may have happened in a single large county. Drew mentioned that the machine-counted votes took up to 4 hours longer to be released than the hand-counted votes.

No, you have to make a more complex hypothesis. Clinton led throughout the evening as we watched results coming in, so at least the Clinton/Obama swapping had to have been done before.

It would be really interesting to get precinct-level data including the time at which it was reported.

I add one thing I noticed on election night: during the count, Kucinich's numbers as displayed by New York Times and MSNBC suddenly jumped at the same time Obama's dropped, but a few minutes later, it was back 'to normal'. What happened then?

I remember that happening on CNN too as I was flipping channels.
