The President/Vice President are Super-State, i.e. State-based not Federal positions, with national implications and national responsibilities. The President sits in the Chair of the Senate. The President represents the nation, internationally and ceremonially, but does not head the federal government. Old vice-regal powers/responsibilities transfer to the President upon the formation of a republic.
