BGP implementation

I hope someone can help me with this.  I think I am over thinking the solution.  I am working on implementing BGP on my network with the hope to continue with MPLS.  My network is rather large.  I am running OSPF with about 50 nodes on the backbone.  I have decided to use route reflectors.  these 50 nodes will be all in the same AS.  Was was going to use clusters to break up the nodes into smaller portions.  I am just having problems as to what nodes should I tie together.  I was going to peer the neighbors using the loopback addresses.  So my question is does it really matter what nodes I tie together as long as they are kind of close together and have an IGp path to each other.  I guess Im trying to group them by how they tie together but a good amount of nodes dont have two common nodes they share.  Also, is there a rule of thumb as to how many clients per cluster.


Thanks in advance
