Based on what I've read above, Archbishop Job of Chicago, in my opinion, seems to be the best option. He has the epicopal characteristics necessary, as do others above, but with his background with the scandal, he's equipt to continue the massive project of the needed corrective actions and reform. Maybe he'd extend his announced retirement date, but still serve a short term; help groom some competent new bishops for the vacant sees; work with some Godly monasteries, to secure some qualified celebate priests to infuse the episcopal ranks with bishops who "rightly impart the Word of...Truth;" and thus, lay the groundwork for the election of a new metropolitan who can move on from the scandle to the work of the greater growth of the Church.
By the way, I can understand why bishops and priests did not blow the whistle while Kondratick was Chancellor. Kondratick facilitated the "election" of hierarchs whom he could control; and whom he had incriminating information on. His power over the church is a amazing accomplishment, enabled by the behavior what he enabled for Met. Theodosius. Now that the SIC has reported, I'm just aghast at what the former chancellor accomplished, which likewise, enabled his malfeasance. And you know, not-with-standing its factual disclosures, it still is only tactfully revealed.
