What is the difference between Obama and a Marxist?

On pages 100 to 101 of Obama’s book “Dreams From My Father” he says,

To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully, the more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists.

Today I found this great article by Benjamin Shapiro here is an excerpt.

He cites as his economic guru Warren Buffett and quotes him as
stating, “[Billionaires] have this idea that it’s ‘their money’ and
they deserve to keep every penny of it. What they don’t factor in is
all the public investment that lets us live the way we do.” (191) This
is Marxist trash. “Capital is therefore not a personal, it is a social
power,” Marx wrote in “The Communist Manifesto.” Viewing private
property as social property is a mandate to tyranny. Yet that’s
precisely how Obama views private property: “I simply believe that
those of us who have benefited most from this new economy can best
afford to shoulder the obligation of ensuring every American child has
a chance for that same success.” (193)

These are not the words of a moderate. They are the words of a
man who fits right in with his radical base. The hatred for Reagan,
Bush and, in particular, the revulsion he feels at traditional
religion, is palpable. Those who endorse Obama must look beyond his
fraudulent rhetoric before signing off on his agenda.
