I have vague memories of the last Pope-off. The long shots of the Vatican, men using golf whispers to talk about the front runners for the position. There was talk about the remarkable fact that the "new" Pope was Polish, and how would this affect the faith which had been mostly ruled by Italians for a zillion years.

But it was on TV, for crying out loud. You never see the synod picking a new Archbishop of Canterbury televised. The choosing of the Dalai Llama isn't shown on television. As much as Catholics are decried by many, they're still a great spectator sport.

I'm almost sorry I don't have television for this Pope-off. In these interesting times, it's sure to be interesting.
