Yes! You should use ssh. If you were using ssh you could set up a key pair that allowed the local user to log in as root, on the remote machine, in a secure fashion, without sending any password over the network. ssh is almost always simpler and, not to forget, more secure than any other way. Take the initial hurdle of learning how to set up private/public keys and you will see that everything else becomes much simpler.
