Bush and Kim: Interchangeable action figures?

Had George W. Bush and Kim Jong Il been switched at birth, would the world be different today?

Would Kim as US president have stampeded his country into a preemptive war? Would Bush as North Korea's leader, fearing a US invasion, have taken a high risk gamble to build nuclear deterrence?

Would Bush and Kim, as leaders of different countries, behave differently? Or would they abuse their powers at home and thumb their noses at the international community?
