PRO: Suu Kyi has been under house arrest for 12 of the last 18 years. Her crime? Her party's landslide election victory in 1990. Last fall's protests got her name and cause back in the news, and the chief of the Myanmar junta has said that handing over state power can be done after multiparty elections in 2010.
CON: This was said by the same guy who drafted a constitution consolidating military rule without consulting Suu Kyi, of course. Meanwhile, the aging opposition leader is said to be in poor health.
