>> Cardinals who enter the conclave as papabilli generally exit as Cardinals. <<

That's what they kept saying when Cardinal Ratzinger was considered the "odds on favorite" -- he won't be picked because the Cardinals NEVER go with the front-runner, and there would be backlash because Ratzinger was JPII's right hand man and already doing the day-to-day duties. "He who enters the conclave as Pope, exits a Cardinal"

Oops.

Show me where Ratzinger was the odds-on favorite in 2005? Some momentum was just beginning to turn toward him but he was by no means the clear favorite going in.
