    Red face pronouns

    Will someone please tell me in what case the pronouns in this sentence should actually be---subjective or objective?

    It was only going to be he, she, and I.
    Isn't the subject "it"? And isn't the predicate "was going to be?"

    Re: pronouns

    Should be "It was only going to be him, etc."
