Raising any 2 cards from the button followed by a Cbet is profitable, but that doesn't mean you should play any 2 cards, especially on-line where your stats are readily available. If the blinds start to catch on that your ATS is 100% they'll start to play back at you, or float your Cbets. For that reason I like to have something to steal with, high cards, connected cards, pairs, that sort. As far as calling with any two OTB I think that's a bad idea and a bad habit to get into. When you call with any two you'll find yourself in a lot of tough situations where you'll feel obligated to continue but without the confidence you'd have if you played a tighter range of hands. Life is so much easier with nuttier hands.
