Procedure, Procedures

Note 1: To understand the huge power yielded by Cardinal Baldisseri (who also was, let us remember with great care, the Secretary of the 2013 Conclave, for which he was awarded the cardinalatial red zucchetto by the newly-elected pope on the spot) and his procedural henchmen, this text published by Sandro Magister today is useful: he who controls the procedures guides the assemblies and usually reaches his ends. Baldisseri will not take this revolt lightly, and he will respond still now, if possible, and certainly at the even more careful crafting of the 2015 assembly. He yields great power as well because he obviously knows things almost no one else knows.

Uh huh.  Interesting.
