Democrat John Edwards is forging ahead with his second bid for the presidency despite the sobering news that his wife, Elizabeth, is battling an incurable reappearance of cancer.

The presidential candidate revealed the closely guarded prognosis — even family friends and some senior campaign staff were unaware — at a news conference Thursday, his wife by his side in the hotel garden where they married 30 years ago.

Putting to rest speculation about his political future, Edwards told reporters: "The campaign goes on. The campaign goes on strongly."

Note: Best wishes and prayers for Elizabeth Edwards.

I love the way they are with each other - she is obviously a huge political asset to Mr. Edwards but they genuinely love each other.

I'm sure if she asked him to quit the campaign that he would. But like the great lady that she is, she believes in what he is doing.

I wish her well.
