It denounced his recent comments on Obama. He condemned him for calling Chavez's policies authoritarian.

It quoted a former unnamed Mexican diplomat. He "met" Maduro. He "wasn't impressed."

In 1998, Chavez was largely unknown. He accepted the challenge. The rest is history. If called on, Maduro understands what's at stake. His Bolivarian commitment motivates him to carry the torch responsibly.

On January 4, the Havana Times headlined "Hugo Chavez Battles for Life in Cuba."

"The government of Venezuela reiterates its confidence in Chavez's medical team, which maintains an ongoing monitoring of the evolution of the patient and has acted with the utmost thoroughness with each difficulty presented."

Chavez's vital signs are stable, said Maduro, in spite of challenging respiratory problems that "affected him seriously."

Venezuelans pray for his full recovery. So do millions of global supporters.
