Sister of late Ambassador Chris Stevens comes OutFront to give thoughts on attack's aftermath and her brother's legacy

Tonight we recognize Chris Stevens, the late ambassador to Libya who was killed in the terrorist attacks in Benghazi along with three other Americans on September 11th.

Ambassador Stevens is being honored with the Common Ground Award tonight for his tireless efforts to bridge the divide between the United States and the Middle East.

More than eight weeks later, many are still wondering who is responsible for the attacks and how the events unfolded.

Ambassador Stevens' younger sister, Anne, will receive the award tonight on behalf of her brother. She's outfront in her first American TV interview.

Lopsided electoral college victory leaves some questioning the system

A country awash in red elects a blue president. How?

Take a look at the county-level election data from Tuesday. Most counties in the country voted Republican. The relatively few urban counties where most of the people live, meanwhile, tended to vote Democrat - which means President Obama didn't need the geographic majority of the country to win.

Depending on how you look at it, the electoral college system gets the credit, or the blame, for that result. Is it time for a change?

OutFront tonight is Adam Liptak with the New York Times, who wrote a piece about this very issue called "The Vanishing Battleground" earlier this week.

With two states on board, what does the future hold for legal pot?

After Tuesday, marijuana seems to be everywhere. The image, that is.

It's even in the sports pages! There was an article in USA Today about how professional sports teams are reiterating their bans on marijuana. Of course, all this talk follows the twin victories of two ballot initiatives in Colorado and Washington that legalized the drug for recreational use among adults.

This raises some very interesting questions about the federal government's reaction and how this industry will develop. OutFront tonight is Trish Regan of Bloomberg TV and author of  "Joint Ventures: Inside America's Almost Legal Marijuana Industry."

After tense election, Israel and Washington ready to move on and deal with Iran

A story is developing tonight as CNN learns Iranian fighter jets fired on an unarmed U.S. drone in international airspace last week.

The incident puts new pressure on President Obama to deal with Iran's hostility just a few days after winning a second term. The news also comes as Obama and the Prime Minister of Israel try to repair their relationship after a tense few months.

OutFront tonight is Michael Oren, the Israeli ambassador to the United States.
