There is one issue Democrats and Republicans can agree on ... mama bear Bristol Palin needs an education.
Andres Cano, VP of the Downtown Young Democrats at Arizona State University -- where it seems Bristol will be attending school next year -- tells TMZ they will welcome her "with open arms" ... because "getting a college degree is a non-partisan issue."
The prez of the Downtown College Republicans -- Zachary Ziebarth -- also says they'd love to have her at the school ... but not EVERYONE feels that way ... ZZ says "Facebook has already been going crazy with status updates of excitement, mixed feelings and non-acceptance."
Ziebarth adds, "The adversity that she may face is nothing that she can't handle."
As long as she doesn't quit halfway through her first term.
