Hinata is very overrated. I don't get why she's seen as a "Goddess" among so many fans when she hasn't done anything special. Wow. She battled Neji during the chuunin exams and almost got herself killed. Then she showed up in front of an Akatsuki member and almost got herself killed again in Shippuden. What a heroine.
Sakura has been nearly killed too (Just like many others), but she still has done at least 3 times more things than Hinata has. Hinata is a support character, not the heroine. She's in the story to make the main characters (and sometimes the story itself) stronger. If Kishimoto wanted Hinata to be the heroine, he would've made her the main girl character instead of Sakura.
