      much about how much money you have, as it's about how you make your money.  If you use your money to make your money, you're a capitalist.  Capitalists invest money (in labor, stocks, rents, etc) to make their money.  The rest of us sell our labor to make our money.  Capitalists use their money to make money.  We use our money to buy the goods we need so that we can continue working.  

      I'd be interested to hear where Obama's money comes from.  If primarily from his book sales he's not a very good example of a capitalist.  If from investments, then he's an excellent example of a capitalist.  That said, Obama's economic policies have been decidedly tilted in favor of capitalists rather than the rest of us (workers).
