Who Head The American Senate?

Please, i'll need the contribution of only those knowledgable in American politics here.

Is there any such office as the senate president in the US? Otherwise, who is the head their national assembly?

I was moved to ask this question because Nancy Pelosi (US speaker) is always at the fore-front eg. during the last State of the Union address.

The Capitol Hill in Washington DC is a federal building where all senators, house of representatives, congress come to have meetings in order to make decisions to vote approving the bills before submitting the bills directly to the US president for acceptance or veto.

The bills has more than 1,000 pages proposed to approve or not even modify too, cost lot of money to make decisions.

I don't remember how often mandated meeting in Capitol Hill held. The Capitol Hill is only less than 5 miles from the White House.

The State of the Nations address is twice a year for both Americans and all senators come listening the LIVE REALTIME TV what the US president has said something very importance announcement. Even it can use for EMERGENCY situation.

Each senators has their own offices in Congress, Capitol Hill, and other private Federal buildings as well as each state government offices too after elected senators' inauguration. It is a full-time job with 2 or 3 terms, i think.

I am not strong American politic, but i took American government class in secondary school to be familiarized with how the US President's organization hierarchical system works.

Thanks for your enlightening post. Now i see why no reference was made to the office of the senate president when the US president was about to enter the Capitol Hill.

So what's all the fuss about Nigeria and US having the same political structure?

More contributions will be appreciated.

Keep in your mind that US has all 50 states that has every senators each state. Over 2,000 senators from those 50 states depend on which republicat or democrat each state voted in 2006 November election for Senators.

That is why you see on TV news that all senators from all 50 states are mandated attending to the State of the Nation address except for illness/accident/injury.

Stemming from the adopted interpretation of the Twelfth Amendment of the US Constitution, the Vice-President is also the President of the Senate.

So, Dick Cheney is the Senate President of the US Senate.
