    Ignoring the obvious glaring fact that Naruto is going to become Hokage, because of the double-wammy of it being his goal and him being the main character, there are two reasons why Neji and Shikamaru won't be making Hokage.

    1) Neji's Branch Clan status: It be slightly odd having a subordinate clan member giving orders to the Main Family, and even more werid having a Hokage vulnerable to a hand seal. The political ramifications are just too much.

    2) Shikamaru's weak. I don't care how smart he is, Naruto can beat him any day of the week (by Shikamaru's own admission, BTW, so you Shika-fans can stop frothing at the mouths). A Hokage has to be able to take on people like Orochimaru without the slightest hesitation; does anyone here seriously think that Shikamaru has a prayer going one-on-one with Orochimaru? Yep, I didn't think so either.

    as pure ability in running Konoha? no contest Shikamaru

    if there was a position for field Hokage(as in field commander or field General) I would pick Naruto

    Out of those 3 listed? Naruto, no question.

    Yes Neji would potentially be a good candadate but as somebody already mentioned, there are glaring flaws in him which really make him a poor choice.

    Shikamaru? He certainly has the brains, that isn't in question. He also has the leadership qualities required. However without more development in his character I really don't see him as a viable choice.

    Of course with proper development on his character he would go from not being a viable choice to being a much better choice than Naruto. Of course this is only assuming that Naruto doesn't get proper development either (which we all know Naruto will be getting character development aimed at making him more Hokage like)

    HAHA, you want us to pick between someone who's surpassing Kakashi, someone who loses all of his chakra in three moves, and someone who could die with a simple handseal? Naruto takes this, no problem.

    Do the other two even want to become Hokage? I'm pretty sure that Naruto is the only one shooting for the goal... Well, aside from Konohamaru >.<

    Only one person can kill Neji with the hand seal and in the time skip you see that he cares for his allies a lot more and he is a lot more powerful then befor. Thus why he is Jo now

    In times of peace - Shikamaru
    In times of war - Neji
    In his dreams - Naruto

    If anyone had to be chosen to step in at this very moment then I'd say Shikamaru. He may be weak, but he's surrounded by the strong. He'd know how use them to their full capability.

    Shikamaru would be a good candidate cos of his brain but he wont be that motivated lol. Neji would be good too but I think Naruto has more passion for it. :p

    tough one, but i already can leave shikamaru out of the equation.

    we want a leader who is well respected and feared at the same time as well as possesing some level of knowledge (beyond naruto's level of knowledge that is :p). respected and admired from his peers, students, allies, etc but also needs to be feared by his enemies.

    in that case i would have to pick neji.

    neji easily fits into all those categories. while shika is smarter, he isnt as fearsome, and besides which, his jutsu (which he admits himself) was originally a containment type jutsu needing support (look at recent chapter even. sure he now has kagenui, but still, his jutsu isnt overly powerful or fearful. neji on the other hand would strike fear into most enemies. its a powerful bloodline limit that most people want.

    so once again, neji for the win :D

    If Konoha was the mob, and Hokage was the Godfather

    Naruto = Godfather
    Shika = Consigliere
    Neji = Right Handjo.umm hand man

    Naruto could probably bitch slap the other villages and make them ALL their bitches. Plus Naruto has great political and non-political links to Kazekage, which is pretty darn advantageous. Naruto is also stronger than both of them and for god's sake, he's only a retard because Kishimoto needs some way to explain things to the audience.

    If going by the story. Shikamaru.

    Naruto motives have changed. No longer does he spout out wanting to be Hokage, his main goal now is to save Sasuke. If he had a choice to save Sasuke or be Hokage, it would be Sasuke all the way. I think by the end it will cost him his life to somehow save Sasuke.

    If you have been following Shikamaru's story, you will see Kishi slowly building him up to be a leader. Although not overly strong, he is very dependable, trustworthy and self-sacrificing, All the traits of being a leader.

    The hokage has to be the strongest ninja in the village.

    I think Shikamaru would be the best shizune type person. an advisor to the hokage.

    So then it would be between Naruto and Neji, and well although i know it was pretime skip, Naruto beat neji for whatever reason, so naruto is the winner of this battle

    Naruto for Hokage !!!
