Check your facts. She was a spook. The CIA admits this much.

I'm not taking up for Wilson. It's just that I've seen about 50 FReepers claim that she was a mere analyst, based apparently on Novak's unsourced assertion, and Novak's claim is contradicted by the CIA.

As for your other claim, I would think it is very likely that an "ambassador's wife" could learn a great deal of things from foreign "ambassador's wives." It's not a bad cover - gives her reason to be there, access to contacts, diplomatic privileges, etc.

Where did you find this? Who in the CIA admitted this?

I know that. You know that. So does every government in the world. That was my point. Ambassador’s family members and staff are always regarded by governments as potential spies.

"...and Novak's claim is contradicted by the CIA."

Ummmm.............no offense intended, but do you mind quoting your source? Everything I've heard and read has said exactly the opposite.
