Obama to Chair UN Security Council. http://www.un.org/News/briefings/docs/2009/090902_Rice.doc.htm I've read elsewhere that this may actually be against the Constitution. Would anyone know if the below is correct? Section 9 of the Constitution says: No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no 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. If the above section is correct does it bar him from Chairing a UN Security Council meeting or not?
