BRASILIA, Brazil — A one-time Marxist guerrilla who was tortured under Brazil's long dictatorship became the first female president of Latin America's largest nation when she was sworn in Saturday. Dilma Rousseff takes the presidency from Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, her political mentor who used his enormous popularity to help propel her to the presidency, a remarkable rise for a woman who less than a year ago was a little-known career technocrat who has never before held elected office. #Dilma_Rousseff
