Not exactly, the Roman senate acted more like a jury rather than judges. For example, if a treason trial was being held, the prosecutors and the defense would make their speeches and then the senate would cast votes as to the guilt or innocence of the person.Not exactly, the Roman senate acted more like a jury rather than judges.

Why is the atmosphere is so informal in the senate?

There are times when the Senate is more formal, but most of Senate business is not done of the Senate floor. Senators make speeches because they want them in the Senate record and possibly because they want to be seen on TV, but they do not expect the other Senators to be moved by their oratory. Senators do have to be present to vote and sometimes they have to hang around the Senate floor when an important vote is expected, so they talk to people and try to get something done while they wait for the vote to come up.

When was Barack Obama's first speech?

It is difficult to answer this question, because Mr. Obama has been giving speeches for years. When he was a college student (both at Columbia and at Harvard Law School), he gave speeches. When he was a college professor, he also gave some speeches. And when he became a politician, he sometimes did speaking engagements at colleges or civil forums, in addition to speaking in the senate and then giving presidential speeches (like inaugural addresses or state of the union addresses). So, without knowing which era of his life you are asking about, we cannot tell you when he gave his first speech.
