It's a session of Open Phones on this edition of Charlotte Talks with Mike Collins - but we have an assignment for our listeners and callers. You are invited, as always, to call, email, or blog about any topic of your choosing. But this week, we'd also like to know what you think of the very political year so far. Has Election Year 2008 been exhilarating and exciting? Have you been following the candidates and their messages as they've been weeded out primary by primary? Or, are you sick of the talk already, and have you maybe even tuned out any talk of presidential election coverage you've heard? We want to hear your thoughts about how the candidates are doing, and even your predictions, if you're brave enough to call the race this far ahead of November. It's Open Phones ... with homework.
