BRASILIA,
Brazil - Left-wing economist Dilma Rousseff, 63, was inaugurated
Saturday as the first female president of Brazil, succeeding her popular
mentor Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.

In her inaugural address in the building that
houses the lower house of the Brazilian Congress in the capital,
Brasilia, Rousseff vowed that overcoming extreme poverty will be her top
priority.

"My government's most obstinate fight will be to
eradicate extreme poverty and to create opportunities for all," she
said.
