If I remember correctly he mentioned that towards the end of the first season he did see the need for a Sheridan like character although as I said I think Sinclair's "enlightenment" was present pretty much from the start of the series. I think its that switch from Sinclair to Sheridan that really makes side-lining the former and then ending his story quicker more credible.

Not sure how much of it was in the original plan but for me Delenn as the third part of that equation being the "one who is" shifts her role in the story after Sinclairs departure. Prior to that to me she seems to be treated more as a Kosh like(albeit obviously more personable) figure who will drive the Sinclair focused plot. When Sheridan arrives though her personal story and the drama involved in it seems to take on a greater focus arguably replacing some aspects of Sinclair's character.
