Pope Francis / Alessandra Tarantino, AP

During his income inequality speech on Wednesday, President Obama invoked one of the hottest names in public life: Pope Francis.

"Across the developed world, inequality has increased," Obama said. "Some of you may have seen just last week, the pope himself spoke about this at eloquent length."

Obama than quoted Francis: "How can it be that it is not a news item when an elderly homeless person dies of exposure, but it is news when the stock market loses two points?"

Don't be shocked to see a president-pope meeting in the coming months.
