But he is right about it not being defined in the Constitution. Senators could wipe the position out any time they choose to. It's existed less than a century I believe.
The Constitution says very little about the rules of either branch of the legislature. The rules of the Senate and the House are passed before every session usually changing little.
Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get to me.
