What a weird election...

1980: George HW Bush runs in Republican primaries, doesn't win, becomes Vice Presidential nominee
1984: George HW Bush is again the VP nominee
1988: George HW Bush wins Republican nomination, and presidency
1992: Bill Clinton vs. George HW Bush
1996: Bill Clinton re-elected president
2000: George W Bush wins Republican nomination, and presidency
2004: George W Bush re-elected president
2008: Hillary Clinton runs in Democratic primaries
2012: No Clintons ran. No Bushes ran. Is this even allowed anymore???

Seriously, this hasn't happened since the 70s.

How many of you were alive the last time the US had a presidential campaign with no Clintons or Bushes on the ballot?
