Why is King David Seen as the Ultimate Jewish Rock Star (In other Words, the Progenitor of the Messiah)?  Is He Actually Even Worthy of That?

King David, as portrayed in the Book of Samuel, is a man with stalwartly admirable leadership qualities.  But like a lot of great kings (and presidents and senators and prime ministers, etc.), he also has some serious weaknesses.  Are these the kind of solid foundations that we would expect in the progenitor of the Messiah?  Would we not want a messianic source superior, higher, better than just everyone else?  How then did King David merit his messianic family status?
