I'm guessing his replacement will be an Argentine Bishop who is one fourth German, Brazilian, Italian, and "indigenous".
But wouldn't it be really cool if they got a pope from Africa? The church is allegedly making great strides there, and the Christians in many African nations (Catholic and Protestant) have suffered greatly for their faith. It could be a statement of understanding of their suffering to pick a leader for the world-wide church from that backround.
Obama already has a job for the next four years. Besides, not being Catholic would probably hurt his chances.
