Aung San Suu Kyi
She has it all going on for her:
The “wow, he knows his stuff” factor.
Because not everyone has heard of her, and those who haven’t will probably tune out at this point. Safe, offended no one.

The democracy factor.
Because everyone loves freedom.
Also Nobel Prize.
For what it’s worth.
