One must not neglect the influence of Perónism on Bergoglio. Like all popular 20th century political movements, Perónism is a populistic movement which builds consensus by focusing on a common enemy. The synthesis of South American populism with the 20th century Society of Jesus produces a priest convinced of a dichotomy between those who receiving unfair treatment and their "moochers"—to borrow a term, ironically, from Ayn Rand.
If Bergoglio wants to "smell like the sheep" and influence American politics then perhaps he might have some words about Mr. Sanders, who seems determined the take money out of the hands who contributed to the collection basket and give it to millenniums who frequent independent coffee shops, or perhaps Mr. Rubio, the self-identified Catholic who said he would be willing to attend a gay wedding. Trump has his shortcomings, but his determination to recognize that the United States is a sovereign nation with defined borders is not one of them.
Should the Pope condescend to national affairs in the future I suggest he look to Leo the Great rather than to Leo X for inspiration.
