A reality check for Bush

Bush in Russia at a press conference with Putin:
"I talked about my desire to promote institutional change in parts of the world like Iraq where there's a free press and free religion. I told [Putin] a lot of people in our country ... would hope that Russia would do the same thing. I fully understand, however, that there will be a Russian style of democracy."
Putin's response:
"I'll be honest with you: we, of course, would not want to have a democracy like in Iraq."
