Associated Press via KVUE in Austin, TX:
NEW YORK (AP) — Conventional wisdom holds that no one from the United States could be elected pope, that the superpower has more than enough worldly influence without an American in the seat of St. Peter.
But after Pope Benedict XVI's extraordinary abdication, church analysts are wondering whether old assumptions still apply, including whether the idea of a U.S. pontiff remains off the table.
Finding anyone whose judgment is to be considered infallible will be a heavy responsibility.
I was very proud of the fact that I didn’t get anything wrong that I said during the course of the debates. I didn’t get anything wrong and that’s a huge arena.

The Holy Spirit protects the Pope through infallibility only when speaking specifically on matters of doctrine regarding the Church.
