3. Won two Grammy Awards
President Obama won the spoken word Grammy for the audio book version of his blockbuster tome “The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream” in 2008. Obama beat out two former presidents, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, to claim the trophy. But it’s not his only Grammy, in 2006 he won the same award for “Dreams From My Father,” an audiobook for a memoir first published in 1995.
