Most of the cardinals eligible to vote are European (61 cardinals), including 28 Italians. This makes the chances of choosing a Pope from Italy quite high. One of the strongest Italian candidates is the Archbishop of Milan, Angelo Scola, who heads one of the largest dioceses in the world and is greatly respected in international Catholic circles.

15:0013/02/2013The Pope will be elected by the College of Cardinals according to the rules set out in the Apostolic Constitution Universi Dominici Gregis (The Lord’s Whole Flock), issued by Pope John Paul II in February 1996. According to the document, a Pope shall be elected at a meeting of cardinals who must be under 80 years old. Currently, the College of Cardinals includes 210 members, with 118 having the right to vote.>>

Visible minority candidates will do everything that is expected of them, will avoid controversy and strong positions, because they want to prove that they can do the job well and receive high rating.
The Austrian candidate is already dressing like a Pope, which means that he is too career oriented and too concerned about his own image to be strong and objective as a Pope.
The South American candidates will be blocked by CIA - (yes, you read it right).
The European candidates (including Italians) are too deeply embeded in the political system of the EU to be independent and just.
The Canadian candidate represents a church infiltrated and controlled by "investors" and donors, usually close to the highly organized zionist minority.
I don't see any good candidates out there. Maybe somebody from Russia, China, or Iran would do - to restore the international justice system, to restore traditional family values, to restore protection of national cultural values - but this is very unlikely for other reasons.
The position of Pope has become too politicised. This is why the Catholic Church, as a whole, is rapidly losing popularity. Catholic Church has alienated itself from the daily lives of ordinary people, from their problems and needs. It became an institution with very selective corporate, social, and political agendas.
