FILE - In this file photo taken Monday, Oct. 1, 2012, Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping, center, walks past President Hu Jintao, right, and Premier Wen Jiabao, left, as he arrives at the Monument to the People's Heroes during a ceremony marking National Day on Tiananmen Square in Beijing. Xi, 59 and the country's vice president is expected to take over as head of the ruling party in November, 2012, before becoming president in 2013 of an increasingly assertive China. Tall and heavyset, married to a popular folk singer in the military, Xi is at ease in groups, in contrast to China's typically stiff and aloof leaders, such as current President Hu Jintao.
