That's what I'm thinking.

The last person that high up to resign for these reasons was John Mitchell

Maybe Hal Holbrook will meet Bob Woodward in a parking garage and say "follow the money"

Enormous news. John Paul considered resigning late in life but decided to stay. Benedict was basically pope behind the scenes for the last several years of John Paul's life, so while he has been official for 8 years but has been doing the job for over a decade. The Italians will want to have one of their own in there, I think the Cardinal from Ghana would be an interesting Pope. He is of the Franciscan order.

excuse my ignorance but if there have been Spanish popes before then why would a hispanic one be an issue?

I was just looking at a list of popes... and I see quite a few in the early centuries that it says were born in Africa.. though I am guessing they were white colonies in Africa? I am not sure.

the Roman empire spread into north africa so I'm pretty sure they came from that region.

Eh, they may have been born in Africa, but it was over 1,500 years ago. That part of Africa was Roman Africa, and it is highly unlikely that these African Popes were black Africans.

If the guy from Ghana became Pope, I think pretty much everyone would consider him to be the first true African Pope in terms of the modern view of Africa.

Look at that list after the fall of Rome, and I don't think you will see any from outside of Europe. I doubt you'd find very many outside of Italy.

At least with him retiring they will have time to meet and find a suitable replacement. The whole ceremonial thing with the white smoke and stuff is pretty neat.
From now on it's being announced via twitter to keep up with modern tech.
