Your Turn: Tray Chic

French President Nicolas Sarkozy and wife Carla Bruni-Sarkozy walk together at Ben's Chili Bowl in Washington

Nicholas and Carla do the Chili Bowl?

I’ve been looking at this photo for three weeks now and am completely fascinated by it.  It was taken during Obama’s recent Nuke Summit in D.C. (As background, you might remember my post on Obama’s foray to Ben’s right after he won the election.)

What I’m wondering here is: What does this photo say about Obama’s cultural impact, not just here but abroad? And how do you read this picture?
