Does Chavez Know a Secret About Castro?

Hugo Chavez seems to be Fidel Castro's biggest fan, and proudest disciple. Press accounts suggest the two talk regularly. Therefore, I was surprised not to see a reaction from Chavez early yesterday to the news that Castro was retiring from public life. Yesterday evening, he made a statement:
He's 'moving on' to take his place in the revolution? He's been 'elevated?' He's not 'completely recovered' his health? Does Chavez know something he's not sharing yet? Has Castro joined Bolivar and Guevara?
