A cardinal in the Vatican has turned over his diary describing the conclave electing Pope Benedict XVI. There isn't much of a link there, but it's the only one I could find. (otherwise I would have put this in ATSNN) I learned about this in the newspaper this morning, and it went into slightly more detail.

First of all, the penalty for a cardinal revealing what happens in the conclave is excommunication, so whoever did this is taking an awful risk for his career. Also, the story I read indicated that previous popes apparently had larger margins of victory; I think it said the last two had 99 and 98 votes each, although how they knew this I don't know. (I think they said it was 'inside sources', lol)

Any more information on this would be greatly appreciated, especially the text of the diary.
