From Dr. Peters' link:

If the Consistory were held today, Benedict could name 13 new cardinal electors; if he waits till the end of August he could name 14, and if he goes into October he could appoint 17, maybe 18. That would be a sizeable class, and some significant reshaping could be accomplished by naming so many new cardinals at one time.

An interesting breakdown at that link.

Isn't the favorite speculative date at this point for the next consistory the Feast of Christ the King?

There are a lot of people who could become a cardinal, but there are not enough red hats to go around and only a fraction of them will be Americans. However, I think its safe to wager that after the next consistory Archbishop Burke will be Cardinal Burke.
