A friend and I had a discussion about whether or not "Whom" would ever be used with "is" (eg, "whom is")... I'm inclined to think that there's no such construction, but still a bit unsure. I can't *think* of any examples, but that doesn't mean there aren't any.

I'd much appreciate if anyone could enlighten me whether or not such a construction exists, and if possible also explain why it is (or isn't, obviously).

Thanks in advance.
