Could Women One Day Help Elect a New Pope?

As the new pope was inaugurated today, it occurred to me how little I know about the rules of picking a pope.  For example, could the rules be changed to allow women who head religious orders to participate in picking a pope?  Could the rule that only cardinals choose a pope be changed?  Is that a rule a pope could change?  I’m sure that there are some very easy answers to these naive questions.  But I don’t know the answers.  So I resolve to ask them of my guests tonight when we take up the pope’s inauguration on Chicago Tonight!
