The government warned Venezuelans on Wednesday that ailing President Hugo Chavez may not be well enough after his fourth cancer-related surgery in Cuba to be inaugurated on Jan. 10.

Moving to prepare the public for the possibility of more bad news, Vice President Nicolas Maduro looked grim earlier in the day when he acknowledged that Chavez faced a "complex and hard" process after his latest surgery.

At the same time, officials strove to show a united front amid the growing worries about Chavez's health and the country's future. Key leaders of Chavez's party and military officers appearing together on television as Maduro took the lead in giving updates on Chavez's condition.

1. Potential for resignation and support for homophobic Maduro.

Just goes to show that all those people who voted for him were lied to about his cancer being gone and that ultimately their vote was for a dead man walking. Totally classless.

3. Anyone with at least one good eye

should have seen this coming. All the state-imposed secrecy was intended to keep his true state of health away from the voters so he could be re-elected. Apres moi le deluge.

4. Locking - duplicate thread

After a review by the LBN hosts, we've decided this is really a detail of the news in an existing thread - http://www.democraticunderground.com/1014333157 ("Venezuela VP: Hugo Chavez recovering after surgery"). Please continue discussion there. Thanks.
