No American under the age of 50...

...has ever voted in a presidential election without a Bush or Clinton on the ticket

1980 Bush for VP
1984 Bush for VP
1988 Bush for Pres
1992 Bush & Clinton for Pres
1996 Clinton for Pres
2000 Bush for Pres
2004 Bush for Pres

So the last election without a Bush or Clinton was 1976 (Ford/Dole vs Carter/Mondale) - and one had to be 18 to vote. Thus anyone born after 2 Nov 1958 has never voted in a US Presidential election without a Bush or Clinton on the ticket.
