And as long as there was a strong cast to hold the show (Daryl, Michonne, Hershel) because without them, I really don't think the show would do well without Rick.

The best possibility I can see is Carl. If the show lasts long enough for the character to be developed and prepared to become a leader he would be my choice. He has the advantage of not being overly exposed to the conventions of the pre-ZA world, unlike Dale. Dale and now Hershel are a necessary link to the "Old World" but sometimes moral actions from the past are no longer moral in TWD. Carl's shooting of the Woodburian kid was the moral choice under the circumstances. The kid was trying to trick him into grabbing that shotgun barrel, Carl read the situation correctly, and IMO Hershel was way off. The danger for Carl is that he becomes a complete product of the "New World". Thankfully for the time being he has Hershel, Carol and his father to provide balance in order for him to become an effective leader. Carl is the new way !
