Why was Cardinal Bergoglio elected as the new Pope?

Pope Francis, formerly Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Buenos Aires, made history Wednesday by becoming the first Jesuit and Latin American Cardinal to be elected leader of the Roman Catholic Church. Nancy Dallavalle, an associate professor of religious studies at Fairfield University, explains why the Cardinals in the Conclave elected Pope Francis to succeed the papacy.
