Is the sentence 'she is as clever as he' correct?

The thing to remember with this kind of sentence is that the *subject* pronoun is correct:


"She is as clever as he."


Most speakers would probably say, "She is as clever as *him*" but that is incorrect.  Think of it this way:  The complete thought is "She is as clever as he (is clever)" and you realize that we wouldn't say "him* is clever"!
