Explanation:
No creo que lame duck ten ga una traducción específica, ya que es utilizada en USA en la jerga política.
Sugiero que no se traduzca y pongas una nota como la describes y quizás añadiendo que por estar ejerciendo su último término, se llama asi porque "ya no tiene mucha influencia, poder y por ende no es importante políticamente".
Espero que sea de ayuda.
