As much as I would love to think otherwise, I don't think we can consider Cardinal Burke as papabile. I just don't see that an American has any chance (possibly a black or Hispanic American, but certainly not a white guy).

My hunch is that the next pope will be from Africa or Central/South America.

They made similar predictions before Ratzinger was elected.
