Poll Results: Burke Should Be Chief

by at . Comments
Future and Current Chief of Surgery?Talk about going down to the wire.

In the longest-running and most hotly-contested poll in Grey's Anatomy Insider history, our readers narrowly felt that Dr. Preston Burke (left) would make the best chief of surgery when (and if) Dr. Webber retires.

More than 9,150 of you cast your online ballots, with 31 percent choosing Dr. Burke and 30 percent opting for Derek Shepherd. Miranda Bailey received 26 percent, while the newly-single Addison Montgomery - who we thought would be strong a candidate as any - finished a distant fourth with 11 percent. To see the results, click here (note that voting remains open if you haven't done so already, so these figures may change).

Moving on to our first poll of 2007: Anyone who saw the previews at the end of last Thursday's repeat saw what looked like Addison and Alex moving in for a lip-lock. While the producers have been known to mess with us - this could be a dream sequence, or a one-time near miss - we can't help but speculate about this new couple... and what it should be nicknamed!

Cast your ballot on the right for your favorite couple name for these two. You can also find the permanent link to the voting for this poll here and vote from that page. We look forward to seeing the results - and to Grey's Anatomy returning to the air January 11!

I agree, Burke and Cristina would still be interesting if/when Burke becomes Chief. But I'm hoping that the Chief doesn't retire for a while. I really like James Pickens; he's done some good stuff this season. He's a very funny guy and a good actors. And, the Chief is the wise one at Seattle Grace. So he can't retire yet.

The poll results do not surprise me. I think the Burke backers belief he and Cristina could still be happy together if he were chief, while the McDreamy backers think he should have more time to spend with Meredith that being chief would not allow. Bubble baths and building a home together on that land by the lake comes to mind.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
