Cardinals choose new pope to succeed Benedict

• ABC News (video)

White smoke rose from the chimney of the Sistine Chapel today and the bells of St. Peter's Basilica are ringing, signifying that a new pope has been elected to head the world's Catholic Church.

A roar of cheers arose from the thousands of people awaiting the signal outside the Vatican. Elated crowd members from around the world cheered and cried as the smoke wafted over the Vatican.

The Church finally tried it, electing a pope from America despite its record of atrocities and genocide of Native Americans. Now I get the smile, everybody loves to pay less.

It's historic, but only if you learn history. Take the time and master the history of all 266 popes with my free Popescope at
