Papal election: The ideal candidate

It looks like I have no chance to become the next pope. Lets discount not being a man of the cloth, that I do not know Latin, and that none of the Cardinals at the Conclave know my name. The BBC web site ran an article about the ideal candidate. In they article they say "Ambitions: Has expressed absolutely no desire to become pope". I just blew that one.

What happens if they elect someone who does not want to be Pope? What if the man only wanted to be a Cardinal? What if he is only skilled enough to be a Cardinal? I guess that is where the Holy Spirit comes into the voting processes.
