Nope, not a bed bug.
Some sort of little spider, who knows what kind.  Given you're in Pennsylvania, I think it's probably an Amish Wood Spider.
Here's a short documentary that gives you more information about Wood Spiders.

Based on the 8 leg scenario that's what I figgered, but thanks.

I'm guessing you didn't watch the documentary? 

If I had to guess the actual type of spider, I'd suggest it's probably a variety of Sac spider.  Normally found outside but they often come inside and are thought to be one of the main suspects when people are bitten by spiders.  Check out this link and I'll bet it looks a lot like what you found.
