Retirement tax questions

Need some clarification on the case of married filing jointly where one spouse is working, covered by a retirement plan and has earned income, and the other spouse is not working, getting Social Security and/or pension, and has no earned income. Can spouse with no earned income contribute to an IRA? Is the "Kay Bailey Hutchison Spousal IRA Limit" in effect? In the case of @markspersonaltax if there's a spouse with earned income it seems this would apply and allows contributions.
