The Pope as Kingmaker?
Not much time today to have many thoughts, much less express them, but here's what I'm reading/thinking about. Tell me what you think. Why is it not a bigger story, indeed scandal, that Bush is going to the Vatican for election help? Is this really a conscious Rove-led-effort to use Pope/bishop leverage, to expand the ranks of the religious right via...I dunno.. Catholic guilt? And could it possibly work?
