Papible Candidates For March Conclave

Business Insider's list of papible candidates is topped by Cardinal Peter Turkson from Ghana.
Italian Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco
Cardinal Marc Ouellet from Canada 
My preferred candidate is US Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York 
There are many others on the Business Insider list, which can be accessed here

Some Latin American candidates, not necessarily on the list, which one must seriously consider:
Cardinal Leandro Sandri from Argentina 
Cardinal Oscar Andres Rodriguez Maradiaga from Honduras
(Personal note: This Cardinal is the great uncle of my niece)

I find it funny that a business source has come out with an early list of potential candidates. Let the guessing games begin.

This conclave is one of the most diverse, in terms of representation, which leads some to believe that the new Bishop of Rome will come from, perhaps, North America, South America or Africa...

Let's see how it plays out, will be interesting, no doubt, to see the white smoke, again, after close to 8 years.

Carlos, very interesting list of candidates. Let us pray to the Holy Spirit to guide the cardinals.
