Obama Wins a Grammy

After winning all three contests on Saturday, it was only fitting that Obama would end up winning a Grammy for best spoken word album. His book, Audacity of Hope, beat out Maya Angelou, Jimmy Carter and even Bill Clinton. Later in the evening, Obama won the Maine contest as well, meaning that he beat both husband and wife in the same day in very different contests. Obama's name is now beside Amy Winehouse and Kanye West in many news headlines. Although Neil Young recently stated that music has lots its power to save the world, Obama's win might signal otherwise and he is now in similar company as vice president Al Gore, considering he won an Oscar for his film An Inconvenient Truth.
