    Thank you, kind sir, for carrying on that debate.

    That's it exactly.  The corporate law rule of "ultra vires" is the phrase that always comes to mind.  Just as a senator could not, imo, sell or give his vote away, nor as you said, just as the senate cannot pass a rule that explicitly allows Lieberman to cast their proxies for all votes.  Just so, it is unconstitutional and outside the senators' constitutional powers to give their votes away.
