The Sears is massive and powerful, but aesthetically, it shouldn't even be close. It's a clear toss-up between Petronas and 2-IFC. Mind you, now that the SWFC has been completed (along with the ICC topping out) that should make for a better competition.

I'll have to go with Sears or Two International Business Center...all the others just look ridiculously out of place with the rest of the skyline. Sears and Two International Business Center fit in with other taller buildings very well.
