While you can just copy the command to a USB stick, there are many more pieces/parts involved in it. Theoretically, you COULD get them all copied over, but what you're asking is pointless. You have to be root to run tcpdump anyway, and if you're already root, just install it onto whatever machine you'd like. If you're NOT root, you can't run it anyway.
