FILE -- In this file photo taken on May 19, 2005, in Quebec City, Cardinal Marc Ouellet speaks during a news conference. Cardinal Marc Ouellet once said that being pope "would be a nightmare." He would know, having enjoyed the confidence of two popes as a top-ranked Vatican insider. His high-profile position as head of the Vatican's office for bishops, his conservative leanings, his years in Latin America and his work in Rome as president of the Pontifical Commission for Latin America make him a favorite to become the first pontiff from the Americas following Pope Benedict XVI’s stunning resignation earlier this month.
