Speculation grows that Chavez's illness "will force him from power (despite) having been re-elected in October."

"New elections would likely pit (Maduro) against opposition leader Henrique Capriles."

Despite is commitment to Bolivarian principles, the Journal called Maduro "an unknown." So was Chavez before 1999.

Maduro is known "more for his loyalty to (Chavez) than for his own ideology or talents."

Maduro's Bolivarian credentials are impeccable. His ideology is strongly left of center. He's a former union leader, legislator, National Assembly Speaker, and foreign minister. 

He's called Chavez's most capable administrator and politician. He prioritizes stability and fair-mindedness. He'll rise to the occasion if called on.

His leadership experience prepared him effectively. The Journal belittled his "lower-class" background. It criticized his ties to Cuba. It's concerned about his relations with China, Russia and Iran.

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