Regarding Cardinal Erdo:

"He is very much an intellectual, certainly a supporter of the New Evangelization and he represents a staunchly Catholic country," Bunson said. "He is somebody I have been looking at as a real potential dark horse."

Erdo has written about the oppression under a communist regime and has pondered the best ways to restore faith to his country.

In 2006, he wrote a letter to President George W. Bush expressing gratitude for the American support of his predecessor, Cardinal Jozsef Mindszenty, who had been arrested, tortured and later lived for 15 years within the U.S. Embassy in Budapest".

I guess somebody does remember the good Cardinal. He was a real cause célèbre when I was in grade school in the early 50s. We sent up plenty of rosaries for his release.
