I say he's qualified. =D
Sarutobi is definitely a genius. But there is a problem with putting him on the list. If we would put him, then all other Hokages definitely deserve to be there as well. Not everyday someone becomes a Hokage. Yondaime was surely a genius, but we don't know much about him, so we can't put him up there.
I know that the only Hokage who has been nicely introduced is Sarutobi, but it's still debatable if we should have him on the list.
