In this country, it was later used to describe a politician who has lost re-election or is not running again, but who stays in office for the remainder of his term. In fact, President Lincoln was one of the first to use the term here in the United States, when he said, “a senator or representative out of business is a sort of lame duck. He has to be provided for.”
