ABC News' Sheila Marikar (@SheilaYM) reports from Philadelphia, Pa.:
Dozens of press sweat it out in front of the Liberty Bell this morning waiting for former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, and two representatives from Pennsylvania's Democratic Party showed up to feed them.
Holding a large paper bag, they offered soft pretzels to members of the media, saying, "You must be tired." ABC News did not take a pretzel.
But perhaps the fuel would have been good. Moments later, about two dozen members of the press sprinted accross the lawn of the Liberty Bell monument after someone thought they saw the mythical bus. It was actually a city bus plastered with ads for the Modells sporting goods store.
