COLUMBIA - The first thing you hear is the sound of shuffling cards and hushed conversation. Four or five men and women play cards off the main hall, talking about the weather and the game at hand. The Senior Center of Columbia is not a place where people typically go to share their thoughts on politics. There's little discussion about the Democratic National Convention, or about the election at all.
