What's the Story Here?

The photo above ran with a story today in the NY Times about Bill Clinton assuming a higher profile role in Hillary's campaign. I love this photo and I hate this photo. It manages to pack more narrative into a single image than all the other photos in the NY Times combined. But, it triggers so many negative visual codes that it make me uncomfortable. Do you find this image as provocative as I do? What does is say to you?
