'In the wilderness' có từ wilderness là vùng hoang vu, vùng bỏ hoang, nơi vắng vẻ tiêu điều, hoang tàn -> cụm từ này nghĩa là không còn ở địa vị quan trọng nữa, không còn ảnh hưởng nữa (về chính trị); mờ nhạt trên chính trường (If politicians or other well-known people spend time in the wilderness, they are not in an influential position or very active in their profession for that time).

Ví dụ
For so long he had waited in the wilderness for a recall to Test cricket.

Paine has only been appointed for this series and regained his place in the ODI side in January after nearly seven years in the wilderness.

That same discipline was on show in India’s Intercontinental Cup triumph as Halder worked himself back into the national team fold after a year in the wilderness.

Republicans are poised to be completely and utterly lost in the wilderness for a full generation if President Trump miscalculates and therefore misplays his current power gambit (thí quân để mở đường cho tướng).
