Other than Kerry/Edwards and Kennedy/Johnson, has there ever been a pres/VP ticket of two current senators?

Also, does anyone recall another instance of a pres./VP ticket with the same first name?

Major party tickets that had two people with the same name has happened five times before:

1792: Dem-Rep ticket George Washington and George Clinton

1824: Dem-Rep ticket John Quincy Adams and John C Calhoun

1864: Democratic ticket George McClellan and George Pendleton

1892: People's ticket James Weaver and James Field

1916: Republican ticket Charles Evans Hughes and Charles Fairbanks

I don't know the answer to the other question

In 1960 two former Senators ran on the same ticket, Richard Nixon and Henry Cabot Lodge.

I wouldn't count the 1824 Adams/Calhoun pick as a ticket since they ran independent campaigns for President and Vice President. The VP race didn't go into the Senate as Calhoun trounced his opposition for that post.  Indeed, he can truly be said to be tho only person in the history of the US who ran for  Vice President on his own.

However, you've missed:
1872 Charles O'Conner/Charles Q. Adams II (Straight Out Democrat)
1904 Thomas E. Watson/Thomas H. Tibbles (Populist)
1956 Thonas C. Andrews/Thomas H. Werdel (Dixiecrat)

I bought a McGovern/Eagleton campaign button off eBay for a couple of bucks (including shipping) a few months ago.  I also have bought some FDR and Dukakis pins.

I may even start a collection, who knows.

The oldest major ticket in history was Truman and Barkley in 1948. Truman was 64 and Barkley was 71.

The oldest VP nominee was Henry Davis of West Virginia in 1904, at the age of 80.

I have a "Reelect Hoover in '32" button. My grandfather gave it to me. His father was a big fan of "No Hand Out" Hoover, as he called him.
