Did Theodore Roosevelt require one?  I hadn't known of it, if so.

               Any thoughts on whether it would require a special Act of Congress to authorize President Obama's accepting the Nobel Peace Prize, as per "[N]o Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State"?
