Who would you speak for?

If you were to be a Speaker, who would you speak for? Anyone, if well-researched, can theoretically be spoken for.

I have been trying to think of a famous person I would speak for as well as a person I knew personally. For the famous person, I think I would choose a statesman with a retrospective reputation leaning greatly to a pole of either positive or negative. I suppose the end result would be something similar to Plato's Apology. Maybe I would write about my grandmother who raised eight children, my father being the youngest, after marrying-down from an aristocratic family to my grandfather who was a small-business owner until his death long before my birth. I don't really know. However, I'm interested to hear who others would write about.

I'm not sure who specifically I would want to speak for, but I know I'd rather do a celebrity or a complete stranger rather than a close friend or family member. I figure, the less personal bias the better.
