AES,

I was going to suggest using Grid, which is much more powerful than 
TableForm and well worth knowing. However, it suffers from the same problem!

Grid[Array[Subscript[a, ##] &, {3, 2}], Spacings -> {5, 1}]

SetOptions[Grid, Spacings -> {5, 1}]

Grid[Array[Subscript[a, ##] &, {3, 2}]]

It seems reasonable that one should be able to set the Spacings option, so I 
think this is a bug in both cases.
