Hmmm...I don't know about this one. Guessing who will be Pope is a fool's errand. So, here we go:
I doubt it. An American Pope does have its advantages but I don't know how he would be received by the rest of the world. If I were a betting man I'd look to Africa, South America or Asia (long shot). Put Canada on the dark horse list. YMMV. We should know by April if not sooner.
