Bush's answer: Yeah
This is from the press event following the meeting Swedish Prime Minister Göran Persson and George W. Bush (translated from Swedish)

Mr. President, you are a Republican and our Prime Minister is a Social Democrat. What do you have in common, and what differences do you have?

Bush answers "Yeah"

Yeah, uhhh, answers Bush. First of all we have the ability to not talk politics but to talk about policy.

Mr. President, du är republikan och vår PM (premiärminister) är socialdemokrat. Vad har ni gemensamt - och vad har ni inte gemensamt?
Yeah, svarar Bush
- Yeah, eeeh, svarar Bush. Först av allt har vi en förmåga att inte tala politik utan tala policy....

That was from the Swedish Newspaper,, whose correspondent asked the question.

And here is the White House version

Q Mr. President, you're a Republican and our PM is Social Democrat. What do you have in common, what do you not have in common?

PRESIDENT BUSH: First of all, we have the ability to not talk politics, but talk policy. We've been given great responsibilities and we spend a lot of time talking about our mutual desire for the world to be peaceful. And we understand that free societies are peaceful societies.
