No, it's spelled "Barbra".  See her official web site:

Actually, she didn't say that; at a White House dinner in December 2000
(after Bush had been elected but while Clinton was still in office) she
said, "I don't think you'll see me around here for at least four more
years."  But "here" in her comment meant the White House, not the U.S.
See this page on the great snopes.com, which surveys the allegations
that various celebrities (most notably Alec Baldwin) said that they
would leave the U.S. if Bush were elected:

     Ms. Streisand has stated that she would
     leave the US if W Bush were to become President.

No, she hasn't.

It looks like Ms. Streisand isn't the only one who read something false
in cyberspace and spread it.
