VATICAN CITY -- With Pope Benedict XVI resigning tomorrow, Cardinal Timothy Dolan is at the Vatican to take part in the conclave that will elect the next pope. Leaving for the Vatican, Dolan shared his excitement for the journey.

We spoke exclusively with Dolan, getting his thoughts on an early conclave.

"We don't have to wait 15 days but I think we need a full week. A week of prayer and reflection getting to know the Cardinals better," said Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York.

Dolan also said it will be a somber meeting tomorrow as the College of Cardinals says goodbye to Pope Benedict. He said it will most likely be the last time he sees the pontiff. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
