Yeah... that's my "Republican hand-waving about war powers" comment.

It's irrelevant mechanical details that require an honorable person to be serving at the head of the Senate.

At the level under discussion, all legal statutes are advisory anyway. This is why we all have to watch the battle of the talking heads: without credibility, the letter of the law doesn't matter a whit. With credibility, the letter of the law gives you cover. So I'ma stack my laws against your laws and my interpretations against your interpretations and before too long we end up with Neil Gorsuch.
