Typical Duties of a U.S. Senator

The constitution provides several unique functions for the Senate that form its ability to "check and balance" the power of other elements of the Federal Government.  These include the requirement that the Senate may advise and must consent to the President's government appointments; also the Senate must ratify all treaties with foreign governments; it tries all impeachments, and it elects the Vice President in the event no person gets a majorit of the electoral votes.
