'The Office' needs a new boss. Should they promote Pam?

Jenna-Fischer-PamImage Credit: Mitchell Haaseth/NBCWith Steve Carell’s impending departure on The Office, all eyes are on the World’s Best Boss mug. Who’s going to take up the scepter as the head of Dunder-Mifflin’s Scranton branch? I’m pulling for Kelly to take the top spot, Mindy Kaling is rooting for Dwight to take the top spot, but there’s a petition afoot to Promote Pam. Iiiiiiinteresting.

Mrs. Halpert is the most emotionally intelligent staffer, able to communicate effectively with the various factions of crazyfolk that make DMHQ so fantastic, but she’s a bit underqualified in the sales department. Plotwise, though, I’d love to see the once-meek Pam inherit the earth paper company, especially because it would give her and Jim something to talk about other than parenthood.

Of the current cast members, whom would you promote, PopWatchers? Or are you hoping for some fresh faces, like David Cross or Michael Emerson?
