NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- There aren't many stocks that make Jim Cramer stand in awe, but he told Debra Borchardt at TheStreet.com Monday that Amazon.com (AMZN) and is one of them thanks to CEO Jeff Bezos.

Cramer said that what Amazon is doing -- becoming the backbone of Internet shopping for not only itself but countless other merchants in the process -- is a brilliant move. He said there are so many ways to win with Amazon that it's no wonder the stock seems to have endless momentum.
