Four years later, there were 600 commercial stations broadcasting in the U.S.

1993 - By the time she was 73 years old, on January 20th, William J. Clinton became the 42nd President of the United States. He beat incumbent George H.W. Bush who was seeking his second term. Clinton won 43.01% of the popular vote to Bush's 37.45%.
