It's no secret that if Mitt Romney ends up winning the GOP candidacy, he's going to need a special Vice Presidential candidate to help make his ticket more appealing to groups he's weak with. You know, like women, African Americans, and Republicans.

Luckily Stephen Colbert introduced a new segment called "Searching for Mr. Right" on Monday night's "Colbert Report" to make the process of sorting through these candidates easier.

His first contender is Iowa congressman Steve King, and from the looks of things, he'd have a lot to bring to the table. He has plenty of thoughts about healthcare, homosexuality and corn -- all of which might stir the pot and make a ticket more exciting. Whether or not those opinions are salient (or Constitutional) would be up for voters to decide.

Personal differences aside, Colbert suggests Romney take a close look at King during this time of consideration: "but not too close. He might get the wrong idea."
