I disagree with a lot of the ideological/sociological statements in
your comment, but will focus on the core point:

What we're suggesting is chosing someone that is objectively BETTER for
the FSF. The post isn't only technical in nature, but instead one of
community leadership, communication and philosophical guidance. 

With that in mind looking for the leader to better represent the FSF,
grow the Free Software movement, and improve its standing - makes the
choice for diversification a clear and simple one
(and that is ignoring the other arguments for those of us who do not
share your specific ideological/sociological beliefs)
