after everyone is acquainted, and if still alive, there's just tyrese left as a stable leader. hershel's too old to lead a group out; glenn and maggie are the opposite who need to head out for supplies way too often; rick is going through his ptsd; andrea gets manipulated too easily; michonne won't trust everyone enough to lead them; axel lacks leadership; carl and beth are going to have to take care of the baby; carl is still bratty; if meryl gets back, glenn and michonne will never accept him as leader; daryl has had all the chances and skills to lead and clearly prefers not to unless necessary (scalding the group for being the only one searching for sophia); and i think the new white guy and his son from tyrese's group is going to die soon anyway
that leaves just tyrese as the logical leader they should choose, but of course the show would be boring if the characters do everything right, so it probably won't happen in a long time, if ever.
Tyreese is Rick's right hand man. I also agree with everything you said about the others in the group.
