How would you define a windfall in order to tax it? Would you also be willing to give oil companies subsidies in years when revenues plummet as they did in 1980's and 90's?

Senator Mc Cain has been in the senate for many, many more years than Senator Obama. Is that taken into account for the percentages quoted by your guest?
