Depends what you want. They all do different things. Leona is awesome if you want to kill things but if you want to be passive, no good. If you want someone who can heal you, sorakas your girl. If you want someone with shields and poke, bring lulu out. Its up to you

Try Taric, he got nerfed.. Fairly hard imo, but he still brings so much to your bot lane. Stun+armour buff+heals+an ult that buffs both your and surrounding allies AD/AP

Like Sarthorn said, Taric is a beast, he has everything a support champion needs.

It also depends on what ADC you sre paired with. Lux atm is an OP support.

who is the best support role in lol? so you mean ap carries who can support to or just ''normal'' support champions?
i'd say taric has realy so much what it needs to be useful even without farm; eventough he needs armor now because of the nerfs to give a good armor aura, sona is similar but her ult is acctualy very good cc in teamfights. she cant bring as much to the botlane but brings more to teamfights ( she still has resistence/agressive aura )
but then with farm id say someone like morgana or galio who can fullfill the supportrole and protects the carry in teamfights

I recommend you playing Janna for soloq.
Easy reasoning - if you have a good adc with leona, it's a perfect lane, you get superfed, gg.
if you have a bad adc with leona, he won't react when you go in, you die, gg.
But when playing janna, you can keep your adc alive - no matter how we retarded he is (almost). You can kite for the ap carry either - her ultimate is one of the strongest in the entire game.. Also great at harassing and winning trades with her shield.
Speedboost on w is also awesome =D
