Yo, yer Joeliness: I see three people with possibilities. They are Cardinals Scola, O'Malley and Ouellet (in that order). I think what will hinder Scola is his late withdrawal from the Communion and Liberation group. O'Malley got some good work done in terms of cleaning up various scandals to do with priests who'd done things they shouldn't. Ouellet has clean hands, too, but he is little known outside the Vatican and his place in Quebec. He did however broker O'Brien's resignation. So, realistically it's between the three because the Church has issues that need to be addressed now. I think it's too close to call between O'Malley and Scola. I can't see Ouellet getting past a second vote.
