My original post was simply an attempt at an honest answer to the original question, without the bias of the Longbeards or Bilbo Baggins (who really did not have much in his personal experience to compare to Erebor).

I never did address the OP's question about leadership though. None of the Dwarf-lords really assumed the role of a world leader (at least not since the First Age). And outside of the activities of the White Council, I don't think that any Elf had either since the days of Gil-galad. Even Círdan seemed by the late Third Age to be content with limiting himself to ruling the Grey Havens. The Stewards of Gondor seemed to be too busy trying to maintain the status quo of Gondor to take a more active role in the greater world. And Rohan had its own problems to contend with.
