Virginia’s Hardball

Has anyone else noticed that Virginia is the only candidate running for Mayor who has been relentlessly, even reflexively on the attack?

Anthony has gotten something of a reputation as an attack dog, but it’s Virginia who pushed Freddy much harder on his Diallo remarks than any of her Democratic rivals, sparred with Gifford on Kirtzman’s show, and was more willing than other Democrats to pick a fight with Lenora Fulani.

Now she’s only one so far even remotely to blame Mike for the recent Howard Beach incident. And nobody seems has even bothered to attack her for being “negative.”

But what do you think the longer-term implications of her feistiness are? Does this push her forward in the primary? What does it mean to her, and the other Democrats’, chances in the general?
