    Default as is ...

    Hello,

    -She is so angry, as is her husband.

    -She is so angry, as her husband is.

    Which one is OK to you? I actually can't figure out the difference between ''as is'' and ''as it/I/you...is/am/are''.

    Thanks.

    Both are possible, but the first is more idiomatic.
