Obama vs. Clinton Heading into the 2008 Grammy Awards, Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton are in a dead heat: both are tied with one Grammy win apiece. Clinton won for best spoken word album in 1996 for It Takes A Village, and Obama won in the same category in 2005 for Dreams From My Father. Obama has a chance to pull ahead on Feb. 10, thanks to his spoken word nod for The Audacity Of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream. And Clinton? Not nominated. But her husband is, and his Giving: How Each of Us Can Change the World, can stop Obama from taking a 2-1 lead in the closely-watched political Grammy race.
