Hmmm...... Since I'm a woman I can't really say about appearance (and don't care), they all sound pretty enough. But if I was, for example, a queen, deciding for my son, the future king, I would think in the following manner: Politically wise, the North is larger, but more sparsely populated and not as rich or fertile. Dorne is also sparsely populated, and the Dornish have a system and society somewhat different to the rest of the Seven Kingdoms. I would choose the Reach, as it seems the richest and most fertile place, with large ports like Oldtown, wine-making areas like the Arbor etc., and because I think in the case of an emergency it would be easier to bring in soldiers from the Reach rather than from either Dorne or the North (plus Dorne is not likely to want to take part anyway). If we take it from a personal level, I would still choose the Reach. Sansa is quite immature (or at least, was, until Littlefinger stepped in), and does not strike me as particularly gifted in being a queen. I think she's a survivor, but she doesn't have that extra something. Arianne seems rash and more immature than even Sansa. Hot she may be, but smart she is not. I think Margaery has proven to be quite clever and has the stuff to be a queen. She is quite charming, she managed to win over the smallfolk, and, from the little interaction we saw her have with Joffrey, I believe she would have managed him easily enough had he lived. She manages to deal even with Cersei cleverly enough and she has been giving Tommen good advice so far (like encouraging him to interact with the smallfolk and to practice his fighting skills).
