So and how do you get root access? Using su requires a password again and sudo without password will do nothing else but alias that user account to root. There is an old crypto rule which states: Put all your secret into one basket and watch that basket very well.
Public key authentication is far better than any password scheme. If you worry about a private key compromise, use a smart card.
