Cloth and water would not have taken up the ink spot...unfortunately it had a chance to dry overnight.

My first attempt was with an interior detailer cleaner (think the brand is Meguir's) but it only faded the ink spot slightly. At that point I got impatient and then brought out the alcohol, which took the ink off right away but left a discoloration and the leather took on a rougher consistency. Once that happened, after the initial panic I wiped the area over with a very damp cloth and then put on a few layers of the Lexol conditioner. I'd guess that the conditioner was applied within a few minutes after I used the alcohol on the leather.
I don't have the Jeep with me right now, but the DW told me this morning that she couldn't see the spot in the daylight after she drove to work. I suspect it's still there though.
Has anyone else had success getting out large ink spots with basic cleaners?
Yes, hindsight is a beyotch...just hoping that any damage or discoloration to the leather panel can be repaired.
