How Many Angels Dance on the Head of a Pin

Speaking of "Primary Colors"... I'm reminded of a strange comment Hillary made a while back when she was asked about Bill's work for the Colombian government to garner support for a trade agreement Hillary opposes.

I always wondered about that angels on the head of a pin reference. Then I remembered this scene from "Primary Colors":

Stanton: If Picker hadn't of quit he'd of won the nomination, gone down and taken the party with him. It was only a question of when.

Henry: And how and who pushed him off the cliff.

Stanton: That's right, but those are fine points, Henry. Those are how many angels can you fit on the head of a pin point. This is hardball. Now you're telling me you just discovered that and you don't have the stomach for it. I know you better than that. We spent too much time together. This is it Henry. This is the price you pay to lead.

The scene might as well be Hillary talking about Barack Obama.
