New Pope Elected

White Smoke

It's Ratzinger, who was the front runner. This bit about the new Pope is interesting:
Joseph Ratzinger, 77, one of the heads of the Vatican leadership, a conservative and a close aide to the late pope. He deserted from the German army during World War II. He is well versed in Jewish issues and admitted that "a certain insufficient resistance by Christians to this atrocity (the Holocaust) is explained by the anti-Judaism present in the souls of more than a few Christians." (Link)
Ratzinger becomes Pope Benedict XVI, which is what the oddsmakers were saying.
