For Pope Benedict, your theory is plausible.  In the USA, his recent moves in the bishop department have all been an improvement.  At the very beginning, it looks like he screwed up in DC and San Fagcisco.  But he has had a string of good appointments lately.

However, his theory is flawed.  Even if the Vatican was destroyed, and all of his Cardinals rebelled, he still has the authority of God to wield.  It is his alone.

Second, I think he is under some sort of blackmail, like the sodomite molestation scandal is 100 times worse than we can imagine.  Why else would he allow Pelosi to meet with him?  That was not needed to prevent the theoretical schism.  Someone made a phone call and pointed a few things out.  So he behaved himself in front of Hussein Obama and Pelosi.

And then there is Fatima.  What would make him lie like he did?  It must be pretty bad stuff they have.

I have to admit, the phrase that has been coming to me lately is "... or the holy father will have much to suffer".

On the other hand, popes have always met with heads of state.  Any common ground and any possibility of improvement is grounds to meet, for the good of the people.  Pelosi did not get her photo op and THAT was the appropriate slap in the face (rather than just refusing any meeting, which would be undiplomatic).
