8 of 26: Ghanian Cardinal Peter Kodwo Appiah Turkson talks to journalists during a press conference at the Vatican, Saturday, Oct. 24, 2009, concluding a three-week Vatican meeting on the role of the Catholic Church in Africa which he had headed. Pope Benedict XVI has tapped Cardinal Peter Kodwo Appiah Turkson to head the Vatican's justice and peace office. The high-profile job cements Turkson's reputation as a possible papal candidate. Turkson had told reporters three weeks ago that there was no reason there couldn't be a black pope, particularly after Barack Obama was elected U.S. president.
