Also, in the original X2, Jean becomes blind and some of those scenes stayed in the final cut. You will notice after Cyclops/Phoenix fight Jean never looks Scott in the eyes, she appears to be blind because she actually was until Bryan decided to change her fate at the last moment.
So I believe Jean was supposed to be (and probably was) in the President Scene as two endings were shot. Also remember Gambit, Angel, and Siryn/Jubilee scenes were cut and to this day has never been seen but were screened at Wizard Con and some others back during X2.
