It's hard to suspend disbelief and enjoy the Naruto series when Naruto is so clearly unfit for the Hokage position--yet was bequeathed the honor anyway. The Hokage's job is not merely going to ceremonial functions and fighting grand battles, but also managing ninja affairs, secrets and people. It is unclear how Naruto would handle the latter responsibilities given he lacks strategic prowess. He wouldn't even be alive if he wasn't the main character. Pain would have killed Naruto if it wasn't for Jiraiya's analytical prowess and plot no jutsu. The ninja most fit for the Hokage job is probably Sai. What he lacks in pure power he makes up for in intellect and black ops experience. He would protect Konoha more from behind the scenes that the lout Naruto.
