For the one gun person the 30-06 is tough to beat because you can get just about anything from varmint weight to heavies in commercial loadings... BUT I can't even wrap my head around the one gun mentality so my choice would be..
.308 because I like short actions and there is ammo out there to do anything I would ever want to do with a .308 from great huning ammo to Match stuff that'll make your head spin. The round is well understood, documented, tested and performs flawlessly.
I know that the 30-06 has an edge with heavier bullets but If I need heavier then I just bring a bigger caliber to play so I wouldn't feel shortchanged at all.
