Today's Editorials: The Economic Punch Bowl

WaPo: Says it's time for Pakistan's "autocratic leader" Gen. Pervez Musharraf to "make a deal" with Pakistan's secular political parties. "A compromise between Mr. Musharraf and former prime ministers Benazir Bhutto and Nawaz Sharif may offer the best chance to check extremism and mounting instability in that nuclear-armed country," the editors advise.

NYT : Analyzes the latest Census Bureau report and complains that "the economic party is winding down and most working Americans never even got near the punch bowl." In a separate editorial, says the report's findings on the U.S. health-insurance industry were "as disturbing as its statistics on poverty and income."

WSJ: Says that Nicolas Sarkozy has "signaled that France means to be something more on the international scene than an anti-American nuisance player."

LAT: Insists that Hillary Clinton should "help the National Archives comply" with a conservative group's request for papers from her time as first lady.
