10. My recollection is a little different.

What I remember is her nomination becoming the butt of a million jokes, because she was so laughably underqualified and the cronyism was so palpably obvious. The uproar convinced Dubya to withdraw her name, and he put Alito in instead.

My feeling is that she likely wasn't as evil as Alito (he's exceptionally evil, after all) but would have probably floundered due to her lack of pertinent experience. As a lawyer with no judicial background, she would have had no idea what she was doing.
