Jimmy Carter Wins Grammy

He's not the first politican to win a Grammy.

Former President Jimmy Carter won a Grammy Award for his audio book memoir "A Full Life: Reflections at Ninety."

This is the second Grammy that Carter has won.  He was awarded his first in 2007 for his reading of the book "Our Endangered Values: America's Moral Crisis" alongside Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee. 

Carter is not the first politician to win a Grammy Award.

President Barack Obama is also a two-time winner, bringing home the award in 2005 for his book, "Dreams From My Father," published a decade earlier. And again two years later for "The Audacity Of Hope: Thoughts On Reclaiming The American Dream."

Former President Bill and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton also won spoken word Grammys.  "The former secretary of state did it during her time as first lady, in 1997, for the audio edition of "It Takes a Village." In 2005, former President Clinton won his second Grammy, for 'My Life.'"

Democrat Senator Al Franken received an award for his book "Lies And The Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair And Balanced Look At The Right."

Former Vice President Al Gore's book "An Inconvenient Truth" earned a Grammy for Beau Bridges, Blair Underwood and Cynthia Nixon in 2009 for their reading of the global warming manifesto.
