please, don't let it be Ratzinger!! Please no Ratzinger!

I hadn't expected they'd come to an agreement so fast. Must be one of the frontrunners then.

From MSNBC.com

The conclave lasted for two days, and no conclave in the past century had lasted more than five days. The election that made John Paul II pope in October 1978 took eight ballots over three days.

Come back EVENTUALLY Cappy!! Ok this clearly was written back in a day when I still had faith..

Not necessarily. John Paul II health issues were better known to the cardinals than to the masses.
