FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty:
While Mitt Romney is now cruising toward the Republican nomination, he's a long way from cruising into the White House. And the two biggest reasons might be women and Hispanics.
During the primaries he was forced to the right on issues concerning both women and immigration - and he now emerges as damaged goods among those groups.
But the damage may not be permanent. One of the ways he can recover is by selecting either a woman or a Hispanic as a running mate.
Polls suggest President Obama holds a 20-point lead among women. Many women were turned off by Romney's comments about birth control and getting "rid of Planned Parenthood."
There is speculation women like New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez - also a Hispanic - and South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley could be on Romney's short list. There is a limit though. It's a safe bet Sarah Palin probably isn't on that list.
As for the Hispanic vote, Romney is in even worse shape. One poll says he trails President Obama by 40 points.
Experts say Romney needs to win at least 40% of the Latino vote to win the election.
Enter Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who has suddenly been campaigning with Romney. A lot of people think Rubio would make the perfect running mate.
On the other hand, it's possible Romney's VP pick will be neither a woman nor a Hispanic.
A Politico piece titled "Vice President Vanilla" suggests Romney's best bet may be a safe and uncontroversial one. Someone like Rob Portman, Republican senator from Ohio and former Bush budget director.
He's described as "vanilla, wonky and unflappable" and the "safety school the GOP needs after the Sarah Palin experiment in 2008."
Here’s my question to you: Which V.P. candidate would benefit Mitt Romney more: a woman or a Hispanic?
