LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Barack Obama has topped a Clinton in another contest: the Grammys.
The presidential candidate beat both former Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter to win best spoken word album for the audio version of his book "The Audacity Of Hope: Thoughts On Reclaiming The American Dream."
Clinton was nominated for his book "Giving: How Each of Us Can Change the World" and Carter for "Sunday Mornings in Plains: Bringing Peace to a Changing World." Also nominated were Maya Angelou and Alan Alda.
Though Clinton and Carter lost, they both have won the category before, Clinton winning twice. And Hillary Rodham Clinton took home a Grammy in 1996 for her audio version of the book, "It Takes A Village."
