DescriptionSteve Bullock is not John Hickenlooper, and John Hickenlooper is not Jay Inslee, but they do blend seamlessly into a haze of slight jowls and ruddy whiteness, such that if you puree their chromosomes in a laboratory, you might get Michael Bennet, who is also running for president, even though you can’t remember who he is or what he looks like. It is also important to note that Seth Moulton is not Tim Ryan, and Tim Ryan is not Eric Swalwell — but they might as well be, because each of them is an avatar of ish-ness: young-ish, handsome-ish and nonexistent-ish, with each polling close to zero in the 2020 Democratic presidential race, which feels like it started a generation ago and will probably continue until your uncle declares, too, sometime during Thanksgiving dinner later this year.

On Thursday a person named Derek tweeted a photo of Seth Moulton and joked, “I think I’ve found my 2020 candidate and it’s Congressman Tim Ryan.” Moulton cheekily replied, “No Derek, this is New York Mayor Eric Swalwell,” which was doubly incorrect. Derek then replied with a photo of Steve Bullock and wrote, “This is Seth Moulton.”
