How can I make emacslcient as handy to use as:

  sudo vim /etc/some.conf

Do I have to start a daemon as root?

I'd like to start the daemon from user account but be able to access
it like:
   sudo emacsclient -s name file

But trying that produces this error:
 sudo emacsclient -s name file
emacsclient: can't find socket; have you started the server?
To start the server in Emacs, type "M-x server-start".
emacsclient: error accessing socket "/tmp/emacs0/gen"

ps shows the server running:

 ps wwaux|grep emacs.*\-daemon
 reader  [...] emacs --daemon=name
