The only one who can tell you if you have what it takes is an Editor. And even they can only speak for that particular magazine at that particular time.
Publication is a lot like selling magazines or cookies door-to-door. Yea, you have to have a product that doesn't totally, completely suck. But beyond that, it's just a matter of playing the numbers. Pin all your hopes on one specific door, and you are sure to go home disappointed (and broke). Because no matter how much your product doesn't suck, it's not going to be right for everyone every day. Shoot, if you went from door to door selling five dollar bills for a buck, you'd still have people turn you down.
BUT, if your product is decent and you hit enough doors ....
