I have to say that Colorado seems like the mildest compromise of temps.

I love SoCal weather. Give me either SoCal climate, or the full four seasons. Places like that have two types of seasons drives me nuts!

Sacramento isn't that hot compared to much of the country. The low humidity and cool nights make a huge difference.

Colorado or Utah are fine in summer as long as you can handle winter.

I'm really having a difficult time answering this one because cities such as Colorado Springs, Rapid City, and Reno are all far enough inland that they're going to have greater temperature swings than cities on or closer to the coast such as Spokane. It's really a matter of what is most important to you: having mild temps, or having no humidity and or gloom.
Mild temps: Spokane
No humidity: Reno or Rapid City
No gloom: Reno or Rapid City

*And Colorado doesn't have 90 degree days in the summer?
According to this they have about 14 in Colorado Springs

I think Colo Springs & Ft. Collins are hard to beat given your parameters. Spokane gets pretty cold and gloomy in the winter but Boise is sunnier and is a good compromise imo. Flagstaff & Medford, Or probably also meet your criteria.

Though a bit more expensive and warmer (which I prefer), I like Temecula and Sacramento/Folsom areas also.

Seattle has warmer summers than Eureka. Have you considered its suburbs? Also, Portland is sunnier than Seattle. Have you considered there? But it does have hotter summers/colder winters than Seattle since it is further inland.

Excluding the recent blizzard, I don't think Rapid City's weather is THAT extreme. I actually think the weather is pretty nice here. However, I only have Omaha to compare it to so maybe I'm just used to it.

Yes, there can be wide temperature swings in Rapid, but it doesn't usually get over 100 or below 0 for long stretches. For the most part, winter isn't too bad here. It can get cold, but we have quite a few mild days, too. Snow doesn't usually stay on the ground all winter and it doesn't feel gloomy to me. It is quite windy, though.

While it can be extreme, I certainly wouldn't call it the MOST extreme. For most of the year, it's just not that bad. Then again, I would be bored out of my mind with nothing but mild weather all the time. That's for sissies.

I don't Willy recommended Flagstaff, he said its too expensive but to look at Prescott. I would also add that Flagstaff weather is not all that mild either, 100inches of snow per year, and has more days where the temperature falls below freezing than any other metro area in the country. Summer sure is nice though.

I agree with Willy though, I think Prescott meets the OP's definition almost perfectly.
