Do you think Jacob always wanted Jack to be the new Protector?

Thinking about his comments about the Looking Glass, etc. Jacob didn't work so hard to save the other 3 or convince them of destiny. So I bet he had Jack in mind the whole time, but was kinda kind by offering him a choice. Though we know Jack has the only character that would "play God" as Sawyer called him to actually stay. What do you think? What do you think it would be like if one of the others stayed?
