This time, CNN went beyond ABC and CBS in running a taped, hour-long program entitled <em>President Bill Clinton: A CNN Special Town Hall</em>.</p><p><em>Outfront</em> host Erin Burnett hosted the program in prime time and asked plenty of easy questions, including asking Clinton how he will <strong>“baby-proof the White House”</strong> with their daughter Chelsea’s pending birth to her first child and the assumption that Hillary Clinton will become President after the 2016 presidential election.</p>
