      Romney is going to have a lot of backpedaling to do to get a foothold with women voters by November. I'm not sure what he'll have to do to overcome all of the women-UNfriendly positions he took that he apparently needed to woo conservatives. I'm sure he'll make some gains with his proposed strategy of pointing out the number of jobs women lost under Obama, but I just don't think he understands how hard women's groups will be campaigning against him this year. It's going to be a big fight for him to take on.
