Hillary Clinton still thinks she is relevant. This week Hillary spoke in Pittsburg to the American Federation of Teachers.

Now, she is trying to tell others what is...

Ivanka Trump: Paid family leave is an investment in America's families -- It deserves bipartisan support

In September 2016, when then-Republican presidential primary candidate Donald J.
