PHOTOS: Sarah Palin’s secretive Philly trip

The Liberty Bell does kind of look like a capital A. We never noticed that before.

Does Sarah Palin want to be President? Or does she just really like attention? We don’t know for sure, but we do know this: The only thing running today was the horde of hungry journalists following Palin’s every move.

Below, Metro’s best shots from the scrum:

We’re no more certain of Palin’s political future than we were this morning, but one thing’s for sure: We hope that she keeps standing next to men in tricorne hats. It’s a good look!
