China's former paramount leader Deng Xiaoping (top right) once referred to himself and Mao Zedong (top left) as 'core leaders,' a label the Party assigned to current leader Xi Jinping at this week's plenary meeting in Beijing. Jiang Zemin (bottom left) was only ever a 'core leader of the third generation,' Agence France-Presse cited Hong Kong-based academic Willy Lam as saying. His successor Hu Jintao (bottom right) never made the grade in an administration marked by consensus building. Photo: Reuters/Thomas Peter
