Yes, you can. A replacement clutch can be found on ebay for $150ish. For anyone doing this, just keep in mind a few things.
 
1. You will need to replace the stretch belt going to the pulley. Do not re-use the one currently on it, as removing it can cause damage. A new belt is only $20.
 
2. You will need a gear puller tool to get the idler pulley off the compressor shaft. C clip pliers are REALLY helpful for getting that clip off. If you don't have some, buy a pair. You will use them a lot anyway!
 
3. After installing the new idler pulley, you will need to re-shipre-shim. I believe the proper air gap is 0.012" to 0.020" but I don't remember exactly.

Overall, the repair can be done for $200 or less if you know what you are doing, and shouldn't take more than a few hours. Really not that bad. This fix did work for me, until another unrelated part of the AC electrical system failed on me a few years later permanently killing it.
