We all know what a lame duck is, don’t we? Though it does have a lot of meanings we generally contribute the most popular meaning to Presidents since the passing of the 20th amendment to the constitution dealing with Presidential succession. Basically we know that anyone who is in power but will soon be out of power can’t get much done. It can be a CEO or even a small business owner that falls into this category but generally we call people in politics lame ducks once it is known they are leaving office. We’ll have to come up with another term for those in office that can’t get anything done.
How to celebrate – Do whatever you want because it’s not really going to matter. Go to the park and feed the ducks. Run for office just so you can eventually become a lame duck.
