He chose Hiruzen because he was mustered the courage to sacrifice himself for the village while Danzou didn't. Tobirama puts the village above anything else, as demonstrated by this chapter, so the choice was clear.
Furthermore, it's unclear if Danzou already had similar ideals back then or if he acquired after/because Tobirama died.
