How do you strategically pick an affirmative in debate…..yet another way

How should you pick an aff?
• Quality of warrant (some in terms of quantity)–comparison
• Author credibility–comparison
• Whats your trick????
• Common sense/gut reaction/emotional reaction
• How your aff competes against specific core arguments (case specific disads, Politics, counterplans, critiques)
• Passion & interest
• Ease of explanation
• Access to literature (predictability of literature????)
• Where will the focus of the topic go? How do I want to
• Will I have to make regular updates? Do i want to make regular updates? Or will I have to make those same updates for my negative strategy anyway?

This isn’t a super awesome…but its a good start.
