The conclave has yet to be scheduled and the campaign posters have begun appearing in Rome this morning. This conclave will be entirely different from previous conclaves of recent vintage. Why? With no Holy Father to mourn, the decorum of such ceremonies absent, the Cardinal-electors are free to openly talk of successors and to have their surrogates and supporters campaign on their behalf, often without their consent. Just remember, he who enters the Conclave desiring to be a Pope, always he leaves a Cardinal.
