During these past few weeks we've heard some American cardinals (Dolan and Wuerl, to be specific) immediately poo-poo the idea of an American pope. Their rejection of that idea was almost "knee-jerk", which I found curious. Then it dawned on me just whom many progressives might dread as the next pontiff - the American known as Cardinal Burke.
Of course we all will have to see whom the Lord will have be the next Vicar of Christ.
