If you're even remotely considering Dus then get a roadbike. Do NOT get a hybrid.
Your concerns about the saddle and being hunched over will be alleviated with a good bike fit. Your local bike shop will be able to put you in good hands - either they will do it, or they'll know someone who will. If a saddle's uncomfortable, change it. Your fitter will give you a starting point and every bike shop I know around here as a buy-try-return policy. Last winter I went through a half dozen saddles to find a good one for me. Saddle choice is VERY personal.
Being hunched over isn't as bad as you think. Again, it's all about fit - get fit right and you'll be golden. I actually have two different positions - on my cyclocross bike I'm more upright while on my roadbike I'm a little more stretched out. Both bikes do different things so my fitter and I made subtle changes to suit.
First thing though - get to a bike shop and RIDE some bikes. See what you like and don't like and then go from there.

If God invented marathons to keep people from doing anything more stupid, the triathlon must have taken Him completely by surprise.
