You should say things that will make it clear you will be a good supervisor. :-) Seriously, you will need to show the interviewer than you understand the company, the industry, and what the job requires; that you are able to manage employees; that you can handle the administrative or operational tasks that will be required; that you are mature enough to shoulder the important responsibilities, etc.

This question should be answered as honestly as possible as it relates to the business you are interviewing for. Typically, employers want to see people who are motivated, so if you are interviewing for a sales position, a good answer would be, "I would like to move into a sales management position". Or if you are in a technical field, you could say, as I do "I would like to stay technical", or move into R&D.

You can not nominate a supervisor for the position of a Premier Answerer because you can't be a PA and a supervisor at the same time. Supervisors are only able to nominate regular users for either the position of a PA or supervisor. PAs do not get any additional tools like a supervisor does and it is just a badge to show that you have made a lot of great answers to the site.

There is no difference between these words, they mean the same thing. Some people however, may think that a Supervisor is a slightly more superior Job title, some may think that a Foreman reflects a Blue Collar position, whereas a Supervisor suggests a White Collar position. In the end it is just a title given by the Human Resources Department.
