Nothing in this manga makes sense anymore. So why not? But honestly? Hell no!
One thing that struck me about this "changed" Sasuke was his answer to Shikamaru, Kiba, and Shino about his past crimes.
His answer should of been. "But what about Gaara? I'll prove to you I have changed like he did. I apologize to what for you guys went through when I left. I know of a lot of my decisions have been poor. But there are a lot of things you don't know. I look forward to telling you all these things. But right now let's defeat Madara and the Juubi!"
Instead we got. "I don't care what any of you think of me." Basically the same old jerkarse Sasuke. And the exact opposite of how a Hokage should act. You can't become Hokage if no one thinks highly of you or if you don't have an explanation for why you were a criminal. Kishi is really going to have to make Sasuke a massive hero and show that the rookies have changed their opinion of him. And he'll need to mature and get an attitude adjustment.
I'd take Sakura and Shikamaru as Hokages before Sasuke.
Gaara may have been made Kazekage at first for political reasons, but he clearly grew into the role. The entire village came out to help rescue him.
And the fact that Danzo still became Hokage despite what the common folk wanted clearly shows it's not impossible for Sasuke to become Hokage either, regardless of what everyone else feels.
2) Same as above, no one cared.
3) Was problematic when everyone believed he had killed Kirabi, became moot when Kirabi was discovered to still be alive.
4) His actions at the summit were all placed on Obito manipulating and using him.
5) Danzo had turnt the other villages against Konoha, and was basically a criminal in the village itself. Everyone knew he was shady and no good.
I'm just saying that anyone using Gaara as a template for Sasuke's rise to Hokage doesn't grasp the difference in their status.
So, you're saying Sasuke wants to bring change by DOING EXACTLY what the guy he killed did. Right.
The only difference is that the higher ups had an additional reason behind choosing Gaara. Everything else is pretty much the same.
What? The point was that claiming he couldn't be Hokage because he may be disliked by a few people doesn't hold water. Sasuke isn't forcing anyone to make him Hokage, he's simply working towards it as a goal.
hokage candidate sure
but uzumaki naruto will be the hokage

Does he have a case for Hokage. Absolutely. He's a strong shinobi with intelligence and wit. While he hasn't won the hearts and minds of his felllow villagers he does have a legitimate claim because he's the direct result of a failed system. The system needs to change and he is probably the only person alive of the village with this knowledge. Naruto won't know what to do, or Sakura or any other of the candidates who would want to become Hokage. If Sasuke wants to change the system so another disaster doen't befall the Senguu or the Sarutobi clans then he has a legitimate cause to try for it. He may not win but his counsel will be needed for the future.
I think he makes an ideal Hokage candidate being driven, talented, and strong. And his personal experience and gained insight into the previous Hokage's line of thinking means that he's more informed than Naruto about what it takes to lead and the consequences of bad leadership. In fact, given how in the dark Kakashi was about the Uchiha massacre before Obito told him, I'd say Sasuke is now more knowledgeable about the inner workings of the village.
However, he hasn't done the groundwork Naruto has in building social connections and creating a community of contemporaries that would want to be led by him. When it comes to the compassionate and caring aspect of leadership and the ability to command respect, Naruto has him beat and that's why he's more likely to gain the title.
If the best of Naruto and Sasuke's traits could be mixed together, they'd be a great leader. I'm kind of thinking that by series end, Kishimoto will have Naruto and Sasuke co-lead Konoha similar to how Hashirama had intended Madara to help him.
I personally don't want Sasuke to be hokage, but then again, it would be a great twist for the last Uchiha to become Hokage..

What Itachi did was genocide... The end doesn't justify the means... Genocide is genocide.
You think that if someone nuked ALL the arabs to get the terrorist there would be acceptable?
I would NEVER pick a man like this for leadership... What if next someone from MY clan decides to do whatever and he decides to "nuke" us all to save the village? Sorry but NO.
Intencions are not relevant. Actions are. He never did that.Quote:
Now don't get me wrong. I would not pick Sasuke just as well BUT Itachi's crimes ARE worse.
Yeah but i asure you he will be forgiven for Raikage's hand..... Considering the numbers of people who will ask of this (Bee, Naruto, Hashirama, Minato and so on) and the fact that Raikage is going to REMEMBER and now when he put his FAITH in Naruto Naruto's plee to spare Sasuke is going to go the extra mile.Quote:
