Obama predicts: No Grammy

| 1 Comment

After the senators testified, Obama hung around outside the hearing room to take some questions about the McCain-Obama matchup.

At the end of the media huddle, I asked Obama for his prediction on if he will win the Grammy tonight. Obama is nominated in the "best album spoken word" category for his recording of his memoir, "Dreams from My Father, A story of Race and Inheritance."

"I am going after, against some tough competition," Obama said.

His competition: Sean Penn, George Carlin, Garrison Keillor and Al Franken.

Obama predicted Penn will win.

"That's I think, the favorite right there. I'm the dark horse."
