Levada to CDF...and the hot rumour on SF

Levada now goes to CDF from San Francisco. So who goes to SF?

I find it surprising that Benedict chooses an American prelate and one from one of if not the most liberal city in the United States. What does this say about Benedict's relations with Catholics in North America?

Levada worked for a number years at CDF, so Ratzinger has known him for some time. Ratzinger clearly has full confidence in Levada's orthodoxy, and this confidence has been based on years of personal interaction. It looks as though the purpose of placing an American at CDF is that Pope Benedict thinks that it's time to clean house in the US schools of theology, and sees Levada as an American who is knowledgeable and trustworthy with respect to the American scene.
