I can't stand her. She's going to end up the main protagonist and I just keep wanting someone to kill her off. She's just a whiny, entitled little brat that eventually becomes a lovesick, entitled whiny little brat.
EDIT: I knew I'd gone over this awhile go:
The Daario plot is the only part of Dany's story I don't really like.
One of the huge differences between her and Joffrey is that she actually has the birthright, he doesn't. In this series, I believe that means a lot.
As far as her failures as a leader, remember: people like Joffrey, Tommen, Rhaegar, and every Targaryen throughout the history of the seven kingdoms had training from many wise people on a multitude of aspects of being a good leader.
Dany had: Viserys.
That's it. Her training for leadership consisted entirely of her lunatic sociopath brother prattling on about how they (specifically, him) are so much superior to everyone else and are always right, needing only to force their will on others.
So, is she going to mess up? Absolutely. Is she trying her hardest to do what's best for her subjects? I think so.
If you can't see the difference between her intentions and Joffrey's intentions, I think we may have been reading different books.
