Michael Bennet Agrees He’s the Bland White Guy in the Room — But He’s Still Here

Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet doesn’t mind being the bland white guy in the Democratic presidential field.

“Let’s address the elephant in the room,” VICE News’ Alzo Slade asked the Colorado senator at the 2020 Iowa Brown & Black Presidential Forum in Des Moines on Monday. “New York Magazine described you as ‘a bland white guy you’ve never heard of.’”

“That’s a fair description,” Bennet responded.

That, after all, is basically his thing. His pitch to voters, shortly after he launched his campaign, was that if he were elected, Americans wouldn’t have to think about him all the time, unlike the guy currently in the White House.
