If such a conspiracy could exist it would be almost impossible for it not to leak out. And who would take all that trouble for the Democratic New Hampshire primary? If the Clinton camp did that and word came out she would be finished. For the Republicans, the risk seems hardly worth the reward. Can anyone be so sure be that Clinton is the weakest Democratic candidate?
Last bit, first: Yes, the fundamentals on Clinton's candidacy are extremely weak, while those on Edwards and Obama are unusually strong. Second: Hacking computers doesn't necessitate a massive conspiracy. It is, as I understand it, sickeningly easy for anyone with even basic programming skills.
Taking the trouble makes sense. It was being built as "Clinton finished off in New Hampshire." She'd been humiliated in Iowa, not only getting her rear end kicked by Obama but suffering the indignity of losing to the slack-jawed yokel candidate, Edwards. That matters a great deal to undecideds who are looking at these candidates, particularly since voters seem to like Obama and Edwards more than Clinton, but are pulled to Clinton based upon experience (via Bubba) and their memories of the '90s.
Now, instead of Clinton being finished off, the entire narrative has changed. (My personal theory was that stopping Clinton in Iowa was an absolute necessity, and that stopping her in New Hampshire was probably a necessity.) Now we're back to Hillary As Front-Runner, with Edwards ignored to the point of becoming almost irrelevant and Obama bogged down in this race-baiting garbage.
Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
