Noam Chomsky on Obama: a "more modulated" Bush (with audio and video)

Democracy Now! with audio and video:
Part II of our conversation with MIT professor and author Noam Chomsky on the global economic crisis, healthcare, the media, US foreign policy, the expanding wars in Afghanistan and Pakistan, resistance to American empire, and more.

“As far as policy is concerned, unless [Obama] is under a lot of pressure from activist sectors, he’s not going to go beyond what he’s presented himself as in actual policy statements or cabinet choices and so on: a centrist Democrat who’s going to basically continue Bush’s polices in a more modulated way,” says Chomsky.
Howie P.S.: "modulated"
alter something: to make alterations in something to make it less strong, forceful, or severe
