he, she, etc. would just as soon do A
(one) would (just) as soon (do something)
One would like to or would rather do something. Often used when one is faced with several options. It would be nice to live somewhere else, but I would just as soon go to a local college and stay close to my family. I know everyone is eager to go out tonight, but I'd as soon stay home, to be honest.
