U.S. presidential hopeful Barack Obama aced out former presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter for a "Best Spoken Word Album" award in the 2008 Grammy Awards, organizers said Sunday.

Obama's album, "The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream," was announced as a Grammy winner at a pre-show news conference at Staples Center in Los Angeles. The 50th Grammy Awards show is held in the center Sunday evening. In addition to Clinton and Carter, Obama aced out spoken word recordings by actor Alan Alda and poet Maya Angelou, according to the Recording Academy.

Obama is known as an orator, senator, groundbreaking presidential candidate, and may have the current momentum in the Democratic primary race, and now he can add "Grammy Award winner" to that list.
