It's very unlikely you will be able to do anything useful with
clustering that way, unless you extend it to more than two variables
and generate group descriptions. Analysis in two dimensions can be
done by simply looking at charted variables, automatic analysis is
useful if you want multivariate analysis which can't be done easily
that way.

Personally, I would steer away from any advanced statistical analysis
- just concentrate on solid visualization of data.
