Obama won his second Grammy Sunday.
(CNN) — Barack Obama beat more than one Clinton Sunday.

The Illinois senator won over presidential rival Hillary Clinton in Maine’s Democratic caucuses. And he beat out her husband, former President Bill Clinton, in a slightly less snowy contest: the Grammy Awards.

Obama’s win in the spoken word album category for the audio version of his book “The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream” – his second Grammy — ties him with Bill Clinton, who’s also won two. Hillary Clinton has also taken top honors in that category, for “It Takes a Village.”

Bill Clinton had been considered for the audio version of his book “Giving: How Each of Us Can Change the World.” He wasn’t the only former Democratic president in the category: Jimmy Carter had also been nominated, for his book “Sunday Mornings in Plains: Bringing Peace to a Changing World.”

Obama and Hillary Clinton are neck-and-neck in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.
