Smoke signals: Cardinals will gather at the Vatican on Tuesday to begin deliberations on picking a new pope, and two main factions have emerged: one dominated by the Vatican bureaucracy, the other by reform-minded cardinals.

The Vatican says the process will be guided by prayerful contemplation, which apparently rules out attack ads with taglines like, "Archbishop Scola: Wrong for the papacy, wrong for the church."
