    Dilma Vana Rousseff, the Brazilian president-elect, will have some big shoes to fill come Saturday.

    Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, outgoing president, is credited with eight years of economic success that has helped bring 20 million people out of poverty.

    While Rousseff is seen as Lula's protege, her unique background suggests she will set her own course as president.
