Bringing in the new year

A tradition in Ecuador is to burn images as a way of destroying what was bad in the past year and purifies the spirit for the next year. A sign of conflicting ideology in the country is the fact that for 2008 the two images that sold the most for burning were George W. Bush and Hugo Chávez.

So I suppose a question for the entire region in 2009 will be: in one year whose image would be burnt the most? I'll try for an answer in another 364 days.
