Confirmed: Bennett to CNN

We can all breathe a sigh of relief: After nearly a month of speculation, Bill Bennett will officially be joining CNN as a contributor.

“Bill’s experiences as one of the nation’s most influential and provocative conservative thinkers will provide our viewers with a unique perspective on many political issues,” CNN/US President Jon Klein said. “We look forward to his candid and expressive contribution to our broadcasts.”

As do we all.
