What is your prediction? Now that Stephen Hawking is dead, who will emerge as the preeminent living theorist?

Whether you believe he was brilliant or not, it is hard to argue that he was not considered by most to be the "go-to" intellectual when it comes to theoretical science. With Peter Higgs in virtual seclusion, Weinberg and Witten lacking media presence, and Guth's only publication languishing on book shelves, who will step into the limelight?
