The Cardinal’s Sins

David Gibson reports in New York on controversial Cardinal Edward Egan, Archbishop of New York. A sidebar ranks Eminence Front-Runners: Six men who could be New York's next Cardinal.
2. Timothy Dolan, 56
Archbishop of Milwaukee
Dolan is a mediagenic defender of orthodoxy who tows the Vatican line but doesn’t come off as stern. He’s long been considered a favorite for New York, owing to his Irish heritage and his experience as head of the Pontifical North American College in Rome. With connections to powerful prelates from the Tiber to the Hudson, Dolan is a something of an Establishment candidate.

If Archbishop Dolan "tows" the Vatican line, wouldn't it have to come off the stern?
