The answer to the question is as follow.

2004 George Bush V John Kerry
Dick Cheney John Edwards

2000 George Bush V Al Gore
Dick Cheney Joe Lieberman

1996 Robert Dole V Bill Clinton
Jack kemp Al Gore

1992 George Bush V Bill Clinton
Dan Quale Al Gore

1988 George Bush V Michael Dukakis
Dan Quale Loyd Bentsen

1984 Ronald Regan V Walter Mondale
George Bush Geradine Ferraro

1980 Ronald Regan V Jimmy Carter
George Bush Walter Mondale

1976 is the last year that neither a Bush or a Clinton were on the final ticket.
1976 Gerald Ford V Jimmy Carter
Robert Dole Walter Mondale

Assuming Hillary Clinton does not run as Obama's Vice President then this trend will come to an end in 2008
