Given that I was the clearing house for ‘Next Pope‘ candidate suggestions, I did receive a number of e-mails earlier this year, from the U.S. and Europe, putting forward the notion that the ex-president was papabile. In theory, any man (willing to convert to Catholicism) can be elected pope! It is possible that he could have made a good pope — at least the only troops he could order around would have been the Swiss Guard.
All popes prior to Good Pope, soon to be Sainted, John XXIII (#262), really believed in this cause. So it is possible that the ex-president feels he is giving the Vatican a hand now that the ex-governor of Alaska is disillusioned with the pope.
I am only trying to shed additional light given my unique expertise in many things papal, especially Americans considered papabili.
