Report: Boston's O'Malley being considered for papacy

Cardinal Sean P. O'Malley, Boston's Roman Catholic Archbishop, is a candidate to become the next pope, according to John Allen of the National Catholic Reporter.

Conventional wisdom suggests that it is unlikely for an American to become Pope, according to Allen, but O'Malley's work to reform the church's sexual abuse scandal could make him a strong suitor for the papacy.

I doubt there's much to this. I'm sure that every cardinal is being covered in this way.

1. Very interesting.

I doubt that it will happen, but it's interesting to consider.

3. Is there one that's not?

Especially in relation to left wing politics? I don't know anything about O'Malley, but I have a feeling that Dolan would be worse.

6. Are you referring to cardinals or priests in general?

Because there are loads of progressive/liberal and even radical priests out there.

5. I don't know much about his politics other than his anti-choice position, which, of course,

is standard. What makes him a right winger?

8. The fact that he holds a significant leadership position in the RCC?

4. Waste of a story...

...at this point, dozens of Cardinals are likely being "considered".
