Monday's vote did not produce results leading to black smoke from the Vatican. Experts say there are plenty of frontrunners but the new pope must get a two thirds majority to take over for Benedict the 16th. The 115 cardinals have taken a vow of secrecy and there are even cell phone jamming devices in the floor to prevent eavesdropping.
“It’s almost like a board of directors getting together you don't put a camera in when a board of directors is making tough decisions," said Father Jonathon Morris.
The Cardinals will remain isolated until a new pope is selected. They will notify the rest of the world by sending out white smoke.
As with any election politics play an important role in the picking of a new Pontiff. Bishop David Choby from the Nashville Catholic Diocese explains part of the process.
"One person has a position they are particularly fond of and maybe even a candidate they're particularly fond of and so they'll discuss and they'll try to encourage each other to vote for a particular candidate," said Bishop Choby.

More women arrested for pain pills stresses jails
May 21, 2013 16:44 GMT
KINGSTON, Tenn. (AP) -- A Tennessee prosecutor says the burgeoning pain pill problem is filling jails beyond capacity with women.
Ninth Judicial District Attorney General Russell Johnson told the Knoxville News Sentinel (http://bit.ly/13HXKj6 ) three of the four counties in his district have overcrowded jails, largely because of an increase in women being arrested.
Johnson said women are becoming pain pill addicts and described the situation as an epidemic.
Johnson said when mothers become addicted, their children often go without food and parenting. He said sometimes children end up under the care of the Department of Children's Services, further stressing an overburdened agency.
