# Implied subject with "i.e."?

Is it required that an i.e. clause have an explicit subject? Preferred? *E.g.*, is the following sentence correct? >She was not amenable, i.e., turned him down. Or would it have to be >She was not amenable, i.e., she turned him down. *I.e.*, can you use i.e. to clarify only part of a sentence, or must you use the full sentence (and restate the the other part that didn't bear clarifying)?
