Well, we have a new Pope. Pope Benedict XVI.
Although I would have been fine with a non-European, I'm glad they chose somebody who's not going to bow down to the pressures of today's immoral society. Not that the church would ever do that, but it's good to have a strong leader.
It would have been great to have a African or South American Pope... those are the places where the Roman Catholic Church is really working right now. Plus, it would show those darn Europeans that you have to believe in the church to have a European Pope!
