In this photo taken on Saturday, Jan. 26, 2013, Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, takes part in the recessional for Stan Musial during his funeral at the Cathedral Basilica in St. Louis. Prevailing modern wisdom has been that an American or a citizen of any superpower could not be elected pope. Many Vatican watchers still think that's true, but others say that Dolan, a Ballwin native, may represent the first real prospect of an American pontificate.
