This morning on "Starting Point," Cardinal Francis George, Archbishop of Chicago, talks to Soledad O’Brien about the process of picking the next pope and CNN's impact on the process.
In particular, Cardinal George said that the names floated as possible successors on CNN are good choices, and may actually impact the selection process.
“You’re talking about them on CNN and other great networks," Cardinal George says. "And they’re interesting conversations you’re having. You help us. And I must say that the people you’re talking about would be good candidates from what I’ve seen so far. Eight years ago I recall listening to the media and I thought they don’t know who the candidates really are. There are some wild guesses going on. This time somebody’s done his or her homework and I think you’re coming up with good names.”
