The way I see it, this one question actually poses three separate and distinct questions.

First, which candidate is most likely to replicate "Generic D" on surveys. I would give that to Biden. At this point in his long career, his positives and negatives as a candidate are pretty baked in.

Second, which candidate is the most "generic" or boring/plain/unoffensive. The clear answer here is McAuliffe. Jeff Merkely and John Hickenlooper are also in this tier of boring.

Third, which candidate is the most "blank slate" and can appeal to the most people. Like Morden, I would put Castro at the top of this list, but would also throw Kander and Gillibrand on here.

Not that many people base their votes on it, but Klobuchar is pretty far to the right of her party's base on foreign policy and issues of international relations. For that reason alone, I disagree with the contention that she is, in any way, a generic Democrat.
