President Barack Obama says he teared up watching a movie about an African-American man who served for 34 years at the White House during the tumultuous time of the civil rights movement. Lee Daniels' "The Butler" is a hit movie starring Forest Whitaker in the lead role, which is loosely based on the real life of Eugene Allen, who served presidents from Harry Truman to Ronald Reagan.
