China or India?

As you all may know, China and India appear to have the greatest potential amongst all the other nations of achieving superpower within the 21st century. Which country would you prefer and why? I would prefer India because it is a democratic nation, it is our important ally in Asia, and it does have a large english-speaking population. China is not favorable because they are a communist. It is definitely not our ally. Their foreign policies are self-centered and they are not trustworthy. I've asked this question before but I got too many dumb responses like, "China - because India will turn into Iraq," or "China...Azian pride!" or "India is dangerous. China is safe." PLEASE DO NOT ANSWER BASED ON PRECONCEIVED NOTIONS. Use facts! I need intelligent answers.
