5 of 26: ** FILE ** Cardinal Marc Ouellet, 60, Archbishop of Quebec City, Canada, smiles as he meets the media in downtown Rome, in this April 7, 2005 file photo. Perhaps he is too young, and from the wrong continent, but Cardinal Marc Ouellet of Quebec City has made at least one list of papal contenders that mentions no other American or Canadian cardinals. Though far from a front-runner, he has, in the eyes of some experts, the best chance of any North American cardinal to be John Paul II's successor. The National Catholic Reporter, a U.S.-based weekly, listed him as one of the top 20 candidates. (AP Photo/Lefteris Pitarakis/ File) (AP Photo/ LEFTERIS PITARAKIS)
