It was just announced that Barack Obama has won the Grammy Award in the Best Spoken Word category for his audio version of The Audacity of Hope, beating out two former Presidents, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter.
Obama on Sunday won the spoken word Grammy for the audiobook version of his blockbuster tome "The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream." It marked his second statuette, following a win in 2006 for "Dreams From My Father," an audiobook for a memoir first published in 1995.
Bill Clinton was seeking his third Grammy with "Giving: How Each of Us Can Change the World," a call to public service. Another former Democratic president, Jimmy Carter, also was in the running, with "Sunday Morning in Plains: Bringing Peace to a Changing World," a collection of Bible lessons. Carter won the award last year.
He seems to be on quite a winning streak these days! And now, we return to our regularly scheduled program, watching the Maine caucus results pour in.
