A hand recount is a determination by committee of what a voter was thinking. It is not just a count.

The "counter" can look at a ballot, see no mark for any candadate and say "This person was confused; one for candidate A". In a heavily democrat area would you trust the committee?

Also, after a few hours of this the human tendency is to say "the hell with it, let's go get a beer"
