Another "pick my character" thread...

I don't know if I'm allowed to make this thread here, but here goes. I've been playing SSFIV for a while now and I've tried all characters but still can't find "the one". So I'm gonna list some details and anyone who is kind enough (or has nothing better to do) could recommend me a character. I play on a controller (X360 & PS3) by the way.

Strengths:
OK execution
Consistent with inputs and moves
Good variation - use all moves and target combos in a character's arsenal
Not too predictable
Can read opponents very well
Play best at mid-range


Weaknesses:
Horrible at rushdown (i.e. bad vortex)
Too cautious
Easily get hit by cross-ups
Bad timing with jumps
CANNOT beat Bison players (even 400 PP ones) with any character


Characters I play best with (in order):
E.Honda
Guile
Cammy
Akuma
Ryu
Zangief


Characters I'm terrible with:
Dhalsim
El Fuerte
Gen
Vega
Cody
Makoto


Characters I've cleared all trials for:
Cammy
Akuma
T.Hawk
Hakan
Dudley
Blanka
Gouken (23/24)


I hope that's enough information to go by. Thanks for taking the time to read & reply. Sorry for long post.

    Well, my question would be: from those character you are most confortable with (honda, guile, akuma, cammy, ryu and zangief), which one do you like the most ?
    Pick that one. If you want my oppinion, pick Honda - you are the most comfortable with, and he is a great character ;) (also my main). Online is also full of ryus, cammys and akumas, while honda is barely played. So, my take - stick with Sumo.
