Windows 7: Remove Padding Around Time?

Remove Padding Around Time?

Hey guys,

I was wondering if there's any way to change the padding around the time because it seems to be a waste of my taskbar space. I managed to get it to go smaller when I changed the size of window borders but that makes my windows look really weird... is there any other way to get the desired effect?
