|Leaf Hokage Tsunade|
|The first Leaf Hokage, Hashirama Senju|
First of all, that the Hokage is the strongest in the village is true. It goes deeper than that though, since the Hokage has the best worldview and plan for action out of everyone in the village. That's what they call an ideology or a person's plan for life and action. There might be another ninja just as strong as the Hokage but with a different ideology and won't be chosen to become the next Hokage.
|Almost Hokage blues :(|
Then the hokage has to be liked by everyone in the village. Or they could stage an uprising and go up against him or her. Truly, it's way more complicated than Naruto makes it seem when he boasts and proclaims that he will "BE THE HOKAGE ONE DAY!"
But I think its possible (I haven't made it that far in Shippuden).
Naruto has what it takes... Passion!
|Will Naruto make it to this day?|
|Still having the Almost Hokage Blues... :(|
