  •  President of the Senate (0+ / 0-)

    There is a difference between constitutional powers and what past tradition has been.

    I am just curious as to why there is no discussion of what possibilities lie in the fact that the constitution gives the VP the title of the "President of the Senate."  Also, before the 12th Amendment, the VP was the opponent of the President (the runner up).  Does this imply that the founders wanted the Executive and Legislative branches split?

    What role did the first few VPs assume?

    Just wondering.
