Sarah Palin knocked 'em dead on the streets of New York Monday - and she wasn't even here yet.
We followed her to Madison Square Garden, Times Square, Rockefeller Center and Washington Square Park, where she elicited cheers, waves and shocked stares.
Star-struck voters hounded her for autographs and pictures. One guy yelled: "You're hot! But I hope you lose."
There was just one hitch: Our "Palin" was a fake! She was really a 29-year-old look-alike named Kristy Webb - and most people were fooled.
The Daily News hired Webb to walk in Palin's patent leather pumps for a day - accompanied by two fake bodyguards - to see what kind of welcome she'd get when she spends the day here Tuesday.
