Barack Obama trumped his presidential rivals Hillary Clinton and John McCain on Sunday night--by winning a Grammy Award.

The Democratic Illinois senator won the award for his narration of audio book The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream.

He managed to beat former presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, who were also nominated.

It's not Obama's first Grammy--he won the same award in 2006 for his 1995 memoir Dreams from My Father.
