Mr. Palmer, because although he can be quite abrupt and not very gallant to ladies he seemed to have both sense and a good heart. The other characters listed just seem either bossy, calculating or annoying.
And of course Hugh Laurie's Mr. Palmer also has great comedic appeal. :)

I'm a huge fan of Miss Bates's. Love your throwdowns!

Mrs. Elton is an arrogant, sniping snob ( she is almost comical alongside her husband Mr. Elton ) who needs to be set down a few notches and the other, Miss Bates,a chattering shell of a woman who lives for her family and friends and is in need of respect, kindness and loving care.

I also like Mrs. Jennings and Sir John, who when paired are very amusing and generous.

These are all wonderful side characters but I think we see enough of Mr Collins. Mr Palmer would be amazing to learn more about!

Plus Hugh Laurie's portrayal is wonderful!
