I'll fourth the Corn Snake. While I have never owned one, I did work at a reptile store for two years and have plenty of experience with all the snakes you listed.

As was said before, Milksnakes can be poor feeders. They can also be snappy and very shy as well. Mexican Black Kingsnakes are absolutely beautiful, but they too can be a bit snappy (mainly around feeding time). My Mexican Black is about 4.5-5' long, and he would definitely be able to give a pretty good bite if he wanted to. California Kings are great snakes; though they have the potential to be temperamental, they are generally the best Lampropeltis for a beginner.

Some Cornsnakes can be aggressive as well, but they are generally more predictable in their habits than Lampropeltis. If you haven't checked it out already, I recommend you visit http://www.cornsnakes.net. They have some 70 Cornsnake morphs, many of which are very good-looking (a favorite of mine is the blood red cornsnake).
