They're getting testy with each other on the campaign trail, and now Sens. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama face each other in another contest: the Grammys. Both were nominated this morning in the Best Spoken Word Album category.
Clinton was nominated for "Giving: How Each of Us Can Change the World," and Obama's entry is "The Audacity Of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream."

Both Hillary Clinton and Obama have won Grammys before — Clinton won the category in 1997 for "It Takes a Village." Obama won this Grammy last year for "Dreams From My Father," while Carter took home the award last year for "Our Endangered Values: America's Moral Crisis."
