Using the Cursor method to select by attribute

Does anyone know how to set a where clause using the cursor method?

I am trying to iterate through several feature classes.

First, creating the in memory layer, then selecting by an attribute next,
copy out as a feature class, clip another feature class to the copied output,
delete the created polygon and then move to the next row to get the next attribute feature.

any ideas?
