Searched a lot of post for the answer I need and found much that were close but didn't hit. So here goes; This question actually concerns a spousal ira. I had about 80k agi for 2000. My wife had no income. I participate in a 401k. If I take a $2000 traditional IRA out for my wife I'll realize an approximately $550 tax savings. The problem is that everyone seems to indicate that the roth is the way to go. Is this so in this case.

Thanks for the help.
