emacs within ansi-term ( is it possible ?)

I am trying to use emacs exclusively for all shell related
activities. For this, eshell works quite well. But, when I want to log
in as root from eshell to modify something as root, eshell kind of
washes its hands off. This is apparently a known problem and people
suggested using the visual-command variable in eshell so that whenever
I type in "su", it hands off control to ansi-term.

That works fine except when I have to edit something as root. If I
bring up emacs within ansi-term, all keystrokes (especially ^X ) seem
to be grabbed by the "enclosing" emacs. Is it possible to run emacs
within ansi-term which is within emacs or should I use jed or some
other editor within ansi-term (I would prefer not to do that) ?
