Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 3, 1992, Democrat Bill Clinton was elected the 42nd president of the United States, defeating President George H.W. Bush. In Illinois, Democrat Carol Moseley-Braun became the first black woman elected to the U.S. Senate.

Ten years ago: A CIA Predator drone fired a missile at a car in Yemen, killing al-Qaida’s top operative in that country (Qaed Salim Sinan al-Harethi).
