How to DELETE the root password? - MySQL

How do I delete the root password from MySQL? I dont want to change it, because I know what the password is. I want it delete it so I can run mysql -u root and get in as root without the need for a password. This is so I can install DBD::Mysql which expects no password to be set for root....

    That's not true, you specify the password like any other user.
