Bag’s Take-Away:
In this visual day and age, the picture is mostly notable not as a protest over Tibet but for the fact that it’s sensational and showing up everywhere (in the Western media and social sphere). The way we also often relate to one photo in terms of another, it’s as if the famous 1963 photo of the  self-immolating Vietnamese Buddhist monk  has been updated.

Bag’s Obama-Dalai Lama Take-Away:

I give White House a B-/C+ ….
1. Score points for one more photo-op with cultural rock star.
2. Lose points for photo-op with someone the Obamantagonists will see (like Obama) as foreign, anti-Christian.
3. Compared to the open Dalai Lama, Obama (crossed legs, cocked arms) looks pretty tight.
