An update to my earlier post

The American Papist has a REAL poll going for the USCCB (btw, thank you Thomas for the mention). No, I don't mean REAL, as in our votes actually choose which prelates are going to hold an office, but REAL, as in it's an interactive poll that actually gives you the up-to-the-minute results of who we as bloggers and blog readers would like to see (but won't necessarily will see) hold an office within the USCCB. BTW, not all the offices are represented here.

I, of course, cast my vote and here are the results after I voted:

Vice President (18 votes cast)
Dolan's in the lead with 44%. I picked Rigali, who is second at 28%. Four prelates, including the Fish, have 0%.

Committee on Clergy, Consecrated Life and Vocations (chairman, for a three-year term) (8 votes cast)
My pick, O'Malley, has ALL the votes right now.

Committee on Laity, Marriage, Family Life and Youth (chairman, for a three-year term) (4 votes cast)
My pick, Schwietz, and Vann are in a dead heat.

Committee on Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs, chairman-elect (6 votes cast)
My pick, Gregory, has ALL the votes at this time.

Committee for the Protection of Children and Young People, chairman-elect (3 votes cast)
My pick, Cupich, has ALL the votes as I write this.

Committee on Canonical Affairs and Church Governance, chairman-elect (11 votes cast)
My hero, Burke, has 82% of the vote! WOOHOO!

The real vote by the bishops will take place when the meet in Baltimore this Monday.
