Official Conclave Predictions

THE POPE WILL BE ITALIAN.
(90% Certainty)
The Italians will throw in with almost any ideological or geographic polity in order to not fully lose their grip on the institution.

THE NEXT PAPACY WILL BE INWARD LOOKING.
(80% Certainty)
Nobody will be able to step out of the shadow of HHPJPII to impress non-Catholics, so they won't try that hard. His focus will be more ecclesial, but ...

THE SOUL-GNAWING MEDIOCRITY WILL CONTINUE.
(95% Certainty)
This includes the Tridentine Limbo, the coddling of internal heretics/external schismatics, the appeasement of Islam, and the diddling by the Lavender Mafia. Most of his changes will be small and meaningless. These changes will be lauded as revolutionary achievements by papolators, and denounced as reactionary by cChurch.

The new pontiff may choose one problem to really hammer away at to assert himself. If he does, Godspeed to him.
