Presidency KtQ public office In our nation has been kicked around a long or as lustily as the Vic Presidency The more I think about it the more I am inclined to conclude that this is because its neither fish nor fowl so far as constitutional definition i concerned Under our organic law the Vice President has little power and few duties Its specified that he meet the age qualifications set up for the Chief Executive but the Constitution spells ou only two functions 1 He presides over the Senate and votes in case of a tie 2 He opens the certificates list ing the votes of Presidentia electors And thats what I mean when is I suggest that the office neither fish nor fowl It is lative rather more heavily than executive unless and until a successorship to the President arises Then the accent is on the executive side all of a sudden history of the Vice Presi dency reveals quite clearly that it was something of an afterthoughi so far as the founders of our re public were concerned Towarc constitutional con verUTOftTlJflJIjjajv7 of II members was named to pull together the loose ends of unfin ished business Consolation Prize at First It wasnt until the report of that committee was turned in recommending the electoral col lege system that theoffice of Vice President was even men tioned And here was the lan guage used In every case after the choice of the President the person hav ing the greatest number of votes shall be Vice Authorship of this idea is usu ally credited to Alexander Hamil ton It was he who advanced the proposal to give authority to the president of the senate in case of death resignation or removal of what was still referred to at that time as Supreme This is the way it was in the early days of our republic John Adams and Thomas Jefferson served as President and Vice President although their political philosophies were poles apart In the beginning Jefferson sat in on cabinet meetings as Vice President just as Adams had par ticipated in the deliberations of the Washington cabinet But dif ferences developed and the ques tionable logic of this plan of mak ing the Vice Presidency a sort of consolation prize for second man in an election began to show up rather glaringly It Didnt Make Sense Under such an approach of course the Vice President was likely to have precisely the op posite point of view from the President on most public ques tions And yet in the event of the Chief Executives death he would be at the helm and the publics expressed preference on cam paign issues would be cancelled out This didnt make sense For this reason a change was made in 1804 with the adoption of the 12th Amendment to the Constitution It provided that the electors should vote separately for President and Vice President The action was precipitated by a tie vote between Jefferson and Aaron Bnrr for the Presidency in 1800 Each contestant received electoral votes and was thrown into the House MAX ELLIOTT Max Elliott Named State DAY
